Bebop Spoken There

Jeremy Pelt: "I'm so much into melodies and into sound, and the presence of sound, that I don't necessarily want to try to play in between the cracks of a note." - (DownBeat November 2020)

The Things They Say!

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

It Didn't Come to Pass...

One of our readers has recalled going with his wife to Gosforth Park for a concert by Joe Pass only to find out that Joe hadn't come under starters orders and the concert was cancelled. I contacted "Mr Guitar" i.e. Maurice Summerfield as to the date and the reason behind the cancellation.



The concert, Maurice explained, was due to illness but he couldn't give an exact date as he didn't have all his files at home. However, acting on memory, he thought it was about a year after Joe's previous appearance in Newcastle at the People's Theatre which would place it around 1978.

Details of the concert that did take place are shown on the above image which Maurice kindly supplied.

Were you at the concert at The Peoples or were you one of the dissapointed punters?

I was definitely at the Joe Pass concert - not the kind of occasion one would forget. However, all these years it's been in my head that the gig was at the Gosforth Park Hotel. Odd how the memory plays tricks! Speaking of the Gosforth Park Hotel - correct me if I'm wrong - didn't Ronnie Scott cancel a performance at the venue? I recall turning up on the night in question only to find out the concert had been cancelled. If I imagined it then I give up!

I thought that I had missed Joe Pass for the same reason at The Corner House Heaton. Never mind my memory also goes missing these days!
