Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Preview: Frog and Henry @ the Black Swan - Tonight!

Frog and Henry made a lasting impression earlier this year when the band performed at Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club. The New Orleans based five piece outfit returns to the region tonight (Wednesday Sept. 4) to entertain an expectant crowd of keen listeners and dancers at the Black Swan on Westgate Road in Newcastle. 

An American, two Canadians, a German and Britain’s Ewan Bleach will play a selection of familiar and not so familiar numbers from the early years of the twentieth century. Bleach (reeds) is an energetic showman while his North American band mates adopt a more laid back approach. Canadian Dave Neigh plays, perhaps that should be ‘operates’, his custom built tuba machine using a series of pedals and leg attachments, somehow managing to simultaneously play banjo! 

Tickets from:
