Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Preview: The Tulip/Metcalf Quintet @ Roobarb and Custard, Seaham. Sept. 8 (9pm)

This special, one-off group has come together as part of a preview evening for an 'Art Exhibition of paintings and sculptures inspired by the Heritage Coast.' 
Local artist Ken Lockwood saw the Francis Tulip Quartet at the Empty Shop and Ushaw and was blown away.
With Michael and Matthew heading back to the capitals of the UK and Massachusetts respectively, Francis asked James Metcalf - Early Bird and Jambone alumni, with a roving/exploratory ear for Jazz - to assemble the cream of the young guns from around the North East for an evening of standards, cutting-edge jazz, funk and maybe an original or two.

The exhibition is at the Spectrum Business Park, 2 Lighthouse View, Dawdon, SR7 7PR and is open for public viewing from Sept. 9 -16 between 10am and 4:30pm.
