Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

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: 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).
