Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

Preview: St James, St Basil and the SSBB

At the junction of Fenham Hall Drive and Moorside North stands St James’ and St Basil’s Church. The imposing building on a busy road running through the Newcastle suburb of Fenham is home to a new series of jazz concerts. Pianist Paul Edis, the ever-popular Alan Barnes and Hot Club du Nord have already been and gone and next up  - on Thursday 18th - it’s one of the north east’s premier big bands, the mighty Strictly Smokin’ Big Band, which will be providing the evening’s entertainment.

Following a recent prestigious engagement at Wigan Jazz Club and another knock out show at Hoochie Coochie with Polly Gibbons, the Strictly Smokin’ will be ready, raring to go next Thursday, 7:30pm, £10 (pay on the door). There is a licensed bar, on-street parking and, conveniently, St James’ and St Basil’s is on the route of the no. 63 bus from/to Newcastle city centre (Blackett Street for Monument Metro).
