Any Jacky Denton tapes out there?

It is now 15 months since Jacky Denton left us for a gig at that over populated jazz club in the sky but the memory of his playing - never stopped swinging - and unique personality lives on. To help perpetuate that memory I've been asked by one of Jacky's family if I could locate any recordings of him. Now I'm sure there must be a few tapes stored in the lofts of our local north east jazz folk that are just gathering dust. If there are it would be appreciated if you let us know and perhaps they could be copied on to CD.

There is a CD in Gateshead Library, Emcee 5, Bebop from the East Coast, Jack is on Drums on at least 1 track, I think!

Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
