Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

The Jazz Lads @ Saltburn Cricket Club - Nov. 9


Ian Bosworth (guitar); Richie Emmerson (tenor sax); Dave Archbold (keys); John Daniel (bass); and Mark Hawkins (drums).
(Review by Ron H)
A pleasing start to the new venue was made with a near capacity audience.
The night started well with Stanley Turrentine's Sugar which, although a strong tenor feature, also showcased John Daniels’ excellent bass playing.

After numbers including Out Of Nowhere, Blue Bossa and an up-tempo version of Have You Met Miss Jones? with fine solos all-round, the audience were treated to My Funny Valentine featuring Richie on tenor and showing him to be, in my opinion, one of the finest saxophonists in the area. The first set concluded with the perennial Ellington classic, Take the A Train. 
An up tempo Work Song, with fine solos from Ian, Dave and Mark, was followed by a programme which included Sunny, God Bless the Child, Back at the Chicken Shack and Watermelon Man before Georgia on my Mind brought the night to a close.
The Saltburn Cricket Club with its ample parking space and its friendly and enthusiastic staff promises to be an excellent venue for an evening of jazz.
