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).

Your Middlesbrough Jazz 'n' Blues Dansette

(Report by Russell)

Middlesbrough's recently restored Town Hall now has an added attraction. A vintage 50s Dansette record player has been installed in the venue's Carriageway cafe and customers are encouraged to take along an old (treasured?!) record to play as you, and others, sit with a coffee. Better still, if you have a recording of a favourite musician who performed at the Town Hall what better way to rekindle memories of the occasion?


BSH readers could, perhaps, rifle through their jazz and blues record collections then take along a disc (33, 45 or 78rpm) to entertain all and sundry. Just imagine the looks you'll get as you crank up the Dansette then drop the needle on your irreplaceable copy of, say, Stan Kenton or Sister Rosetta Tharpe! The floor will be yours as you regale/bore your audience with memories of the time you heard some of the jazz 'n' blues greats for real on Albert Road. 

During the summer the Dansette will be 'on tour' calling at other Middlesbrough locations. If do you visit the Town Hall (with a copy of Chris Barber's New Orleans Joys under your arm) it'll be best to call before you set off to ensure the vintage record player is in situ. Tel: 01642 729729.
