Bebop Spoken There

Sunday Jazz @ Middlesbrough - It's Started!

Ros Rigby, that indefatigable supporter of jazz and all art related genres, tells me that the first of the monthly Sunday afternoon jazz concerts at Middlesbrough Town Hall got off to a good start yesterday. The three bands were the Noel Dennis Trio (photo courtesy of Ros Rigby), Emma Johnson’s Gravy Boat (who were excellent and went down extremely well - which is great as it’s all original material) and Anthony Strong and his band.


Ros, who was instrumental in organising last year's revival of the 1978 Cleveland Jazz Festival, is eager to point out that October's programme celebrates that occasion 1 year on with an extra special Sunday session culminating with a performance by Tommy Smith and the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.
