Bebop Spoken There

Ambrose Akinmusire: “I love teaching, and I love the exchange. And I’m starting to accept my role as a mentor. That sounds weird to say. But I can’t avoid the fact that there are younger musicians who are watching me.” – (Down Beat September 2017).

Mike Gibbs: “Rehearsals are a chance for players to learn my degree of vagueness.” – (Jazzwise September 2017).

It’s the Dun Cow for the Pocket Jazz Orchestra

Gig goers in the Cleveland area will be familiar with the Pocket Jazz Orchestra. A ‘Jazz and Tapas’ residency at No.60, ARC, Stockton goes from strength to strength (next one Thursday 21) and the orchestra (Mark Toomey, alto, Paul Donnelly, guitar, Jeremy McMurray, piano, Peter Ayton, bass) can be heard at the Dun Cow on Old Elvet in Durham a week on Friday (15th). It’s an eight o’clock start, why not get along and give the night your support? You never know, it could lead to a regular session in Durham

  1. Tiny little boozer, nicely out of the way of the rough and tumble of Durham these days. Bit of an old mans pub; proper beer and stuff. I should be there and may manage to coax a few.

  2. Brilliant that we have such an active scene in Durham right now.

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.
