Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Jam today, jam tomorrow and jam the day after...

This evening (Tuesday 7) sees the first of four jam sessions in three days across Tyne and Wear. The high-quality Jazz Café jam session on Pink Lane (see photo) signs off tonight as the venue closes for its annual summer break. The students aren't around - just wait 'til next month, new names are sure to emerge - but don't let that put you off as some seriously talented musicians will be keen to have a blow. 
Tomorrow, what to do? Dave Weisser's long-running 'workshop' (think Mingus!) is on, come rain, come shine, at the Globe. It's anyone's guess who'll turn up, perhaps drummer Matthew Fairhirst, home for the summer, will help out DW. Then, over in Brandling Park, Jesmond, at the Dun Cow, the fortnightly jam session (see poster) appears to be inking itself into the oh-so-busy jazz calendar. And on Thursday at the Fire Station (see photo) on High Street West (next to the Empire Theatre) in Sunderland it's the weekly Jazz Jam hosted by the Stu Collingwood Trio. Sitters-in are positively welcome, as indeed they are at all of the sessions. So, you've no excuse, it's a toss a coin. All start at eight o'clock, go for it!
