Jazz and Ale

Whilst the weather has called time - for the time being - on a number of jazz venues I thought it might be of interest to do a little research. I'm sure Russell will be delighted to co-ordinate our findings.
The subject is Jazz and Beer! Where can one find the best jazz and the best ale under the one roof?
The venues needn't be restricted to the North East as they could form the basis of an alcoholiday.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Lance.

  1. I'm a big fan of Deuchars so The Bridge Hotel gets a vote from me!

  2. While I don't drink, I'm usually out with those who do, and I believe the following pubs in Glasgow do jazz and a good selection of beers and/or real ales:

    Brel in the West End, smaller but good selection of beers, small group straight ahead improvised jazz.

    The Three Judges in the West End, probably one of the best selections of real ales and ciders in the city, does traditional jazz on a Sunday afternoon.

    Blackfriars in the Merchant City, usually has a good selection of guest ales and beers, and has various kinds of jazz, and other music.

    The Beer Cafe in the Merchant City, has a very large selections of beers from across the world, and often has small groups playing, slightly more traditional music than Brel.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
