Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Preview: The Dean Stockdale Trio @ Hexham Jazz Club (March 17)

Next Tuesday (17 March) Hexham Jazz Club presents the Dean Stockdale Trio in concert. The Fox Inn's regulars are in for a treat as pianist Stockdale's swinging Oscar Peterson-inspired set will feature two of the best in the business - bassist extraordinaire Andy Champion and the exceptionally talented young drummer Abbie Finn. Expect GASbook gems, modern jazz standards and, with a bit of luck, one or two of Stockdale's own compositions*. 


Hexham Jazz Club's gigs are made possible thanks to generous on-the-night donations by its many supporters. Do get along to enjoy an evening of top class jazz. Your attendance will help secure the future of jazz in the Northumberland market town. 8:30 start, two sets, 10:30 finish.

Dean Stockdale's album Origin is well worth acquiring. It could be that Dean has a handful of copies left (the trio recording features Gavin Barras and Adam Dawson) and he'll have them with him on the night. You could buy two copies - one for yourself and one to give to a loved one at Christmas!
