He mastered the art of jazz singing to an extraordinary degree, taking it to levels appreciated only by those few who knew about him and understood what he was doing."

Last month the Beast from the East decimated jazz gigs across the region. April is bound to be kinder, isn’t it? And with the Gateshead International Jazz Festival starting on Friday 6th it had better be! For three days Sage Gateshead is the only game in town. Tiptoe open proceedings playing a set on the concourse at six o’clock on Friday and from then there is a non-stop
Pianist Dominic J Marshall leads a mini-invasion of Tyneside by musicians from Amsterdam in late March and early April.

Hoochie Coochie was steaming, the snow outside melting, inside, the air was filled with the aromas usually inhaled at Fenwick's cosmetic counters. I'm sure
Rare vintage photo of the Panama Jazzmen at a dance in 1952. Those jitterbuggin' dancers could certainly cut a caper!
The line-up is Joe McMullin (trumpet); Ronnie McLean (trombone); Stan Martin (clarinet); Norman Rudd (piano); Joe Garner (bass); Teddy Hutchinson (drums) but who is the tenor player?

Alex Hitchcock (tenor); James Copus (trumpet/flugel); Will Barry (piano/keys); Joe Downard (bass); Jay Davis (drums).
