Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Preview: Kinesis + Abbie Finn Trio @ The Newcastle Jazz Co-op - August 18.

This Saturday at the Globe drummer Abbie Finn plays a duo gig with saxophonist Harry Keeble. They met at Leeds College of Music. Abbie has since graduated, indeed she has recently completed a period of further study in London and this Newcastle date with undergraduate Harry - he's still at Leeds - promises an evening of standards and some freer material. 
During the evening bassist Paul Grainger will join Abbie and Harry in a trio set. The jam session kingpin knows the duo from their assured contributions at sessions around town and it will be interesting to hear what they come up with. Doors at the Railway Street premises open at 7:30, £6 admission (student £3).
