Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Showtime with Soznak @ Northumberland St., Newcastle - Easter Saturday (April 20)

Come rain, come shine, Paul Miskin's multi-national street band of skanksters can be found most Saturdays around Monument or on Northumberland Street belting out their danceable brand of ska, funk and pop. Today Soznak basked in unseasonal, wall-to-wall sunshine as they entertained the shopping hordes. No Jude Murphy today, however, on the plus side, jazz 'bone man David Grey took his place in the skanking frontline. Showtime was seen sporting a natty line in summer shorts - yep, the sun has definitely got its hat on! 

Later today Soznak will be part of a St George's Day party at Scotswood Sports Centre (see today's listings for details).
