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.

Abbie Finn to top the bill at Billy's!

In compiling a preview of this year's Newcastle Jazz Festival (Aug 13-16) a top-of-the-bill gig featuring the Abbie Finn Trio somehow or other failed to get a mention. This could be due to the writer's incompetence or incompetence fuelled by several bottles of McEwan's Champion Ale (7.3% ABV, Your Honour). 

In an attempt to make amends for this omission, please make a note of the date, time and venue...Sunday 16 August, four o'clock at Billy Bootlegger's, Nelson St, Newcastle. It's a free admission gig (as are all gigs at Billy's), it's a one hour special featuring the fabulous Abbie Finn Trio (Abbie, drums, Harry Keeble, tenor sax, Paul Grainger, bass) which will give you an hour or so to amble round to the Tyneside Cinema to watch Geordie Jazz Man at six o'clock.
