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!

Jazz in Newcastle - 1961

Trombonist Gordon Solomon reminded me of this event from almost 60 years ago that featured some of the northeast's greatest bands and musicians of the time. Most, fortunately not all, are long gone including the Brothers Carr (Mike and Ian) who went on to greater things at home and abroad.



I think the event took place at the legendary Down Beat Club on Carliol Square in 1961 - ah the memories!

Thank you Gordon.
Lance
