Ashington Jazz Club - new venue to be revealed...

Just like the Jazz Café in Newcastle,  in December, we are moving to a new venue, a new day and new times.
Details of the new venue/dates/times etc. will be given out at the last gig at the Elephant next Wednesday (November 7).
Gordon Solomon (who ran our original band the River City Jazzmen) is back playing again. He will be a special guest with our resident band  Classic Swing next Wednesday, ending a relationship Ashington Jazz Club has had with the Elephant that goes back 33 years
All of those musicians who have played/sung at the Elephant over the years are welcome to come along for a jam session in the second set. Meet up with all your old friends and help us go out with a Bang!
JT.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.
