Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Bill Evans: "A composer writes something, and an orchestra interprets it--he spends maybe six months writing 10 minutes of music, but a jazz musician spends 10 minutes of playing 10 minutes of music, and he performs it himself". - (Jazz Monthly July1960).

Anti Social Behaviour on the Newcastle-Carlisle Line

Brian Bennett and the Vieux Carré Jazzmen were snapped 'entertaining' passengers on the Newcastle to Carlisle train during the summer. Banjo-strumming Brian had the effrontery to perform in front of a poster banning anti-social behaviour! What are our railways coming to that such criminal acts are performed on public transport - I bet he didn't even pay his fare.
Anyone who feels strongly enough to make a citizens arrest - and we hope there are those amongst us who do - can do so tonight at the Corner House in Heaton where Brian and his gang - sorry band - aka the Vieux Carré Jazzmen will be re-creating the crime.
8:45 pm is when the action replay commences and we hope that justice will be seen to be done. If the train robbers got 30 years then...
Banjos on trains, whatever next?
Lance.

    Lance - you forgot to mention the Tuba. Surely equal to the banjo?

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.
