Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

I'll swap you a Led Bib for a John Etheridge ...

By coincidence, following on from my enthusiastic review of Allison Neale's forthcoming album, I came across a Jazz North East card advertising a 2007 gig by Allison at the Corner House in Newcastle.

I'd been using it as a bookmark - I've got taste in bookmarks as well as books!

Further investigation found that I had a total of 52 of these attractively designed items advertising JNE concerts along with related gigs by Schmazz @ the Cluny and Jazz Action. 

Glossy postcard sized with band info on the back of the card, they are like a modern jazz version of the old cigarette cards (I have a complete set of "Famous Cricketers") or, to be more contemporary, Pokémon cards (got none of those).

A bit of history in the making ...
