Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

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.
