Jazz with Your Coffee?

BSH is a jazz blog, I know, but I like to recommend coffee shops where you can hear jazz played. I’ve mentioned the good selection of recorded music to be heard in Nero’s Caffe in King Street at South Shields, both jazz and other interesting music, such as Joni Mitchell tracks.
I discovered another such venue just yesterday – Chai Coffee House, next to the Chichester Metro station at South Shields (Chai, Chi, get it?) An abundance of swing music, Ella I think, to accompany a delicious selection of food, toasted bagels, smoothies, etc . And what’s more, this is run mainly by volunteers, for Hospitality & Hope, an organisation which supports people who are homeless or at risk. Everything you spend goes to the charity. I’ll be there again soon!
