Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Preview: Customs House Big Band 'Swing on a Summer's Evening' @ Customs House, South Shields - June 16.

Next Sunday, June 16, big band fans will be heading for South Shields where the Customs House Big Band will be presenting their 20th anniversary with a concert at - where else? - The Customs House in the Mill Dam area of the town.

As well as the precision ensemble work, the band also has a host of top-class soloists and, in vocalist Ruth Lambert, one of the finest singers on the scene.

It's an early start - 6:00pm - to capture a wider range of audience although I'd want to see this band even if it was a midnight matinee.
