Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Preview: Sunday in Newcastle (and surrounding districts)

Another 'spoilt for choice' Sunday. Giles Strong/Roly Veitch at Blaydon; Steve Glendinning at the Globe and The Postmodernaires at Hoochie.
This latter gig is the most intriguing. Fuelled by the global success of the American Postmodern Jukebox, the Postmodernaires (remember the original Modernaires singing Jukebox Saturday Night?) follow a similar route to that taken by PMJ i.e. modern pop songs played 1920 style and going by their YouTube promo they do it well. I guess the swing dancers who were out for the House of the Black Gardenia at GIJF last weekend will be up for this one too. It's a 7 piece band so I'm not sure who the horns will be other than trumpet/MD Ross Laing; suffice to say they will do the job brilliantly!
It's a 6pm stomp off (doors 4pm) so making a mad dash to the Black Bull or the Globe may require an early departure or none at all.
This is a shame as the three guitarists at the other two venues (plus Bradley over at the Old Fire Station in Sunderland) are all masters of the six strings.
Perhaps the answer lies in Sleepy Jake Segrave who will be playing the blues from 9pm at Billy Bootleggers.
