Latest on Old Blue Eyes

Whilst we await an update on the projected Hollywood Sinatra biopic comes a report, hot off the New Jersey press, of a Sinatra stage presentation in the offing that looks a little bit different inasmuch as it isn't a "Rat Pack Rides Again" mishmash. Click here for details. Lance.

    The Sinatra biopic is to be directed by Martin Scorsese. No one cast as yet, although it has been suggested that Leonardo DiCaprio could take the lead.

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.
