Bebop Spoken There

Newcastle Evening Chronicle (1930): "...questioning, incidentally, the right of either [saxophone or bagpipes] to be looked upon as a musical instrument instead of as one of torture." - (Melody Maker June 1930). From Colin Aitchison's amazing collection).

Joel Harrison: “It’s incredibly hard to play bebop on guitar, harder than on saxophone.” – (Jazz Times August 2015)

It Never Rains But...

Thursday February 25 is one of those days when you don't want to be twins but triplets! Apart from the Graeme Stephen Septet at Gateshead Old Town Hall and Ruth Lambert with the Custom's House Big Band at Blaydon news has just come in of the following free gig at Bishop Auckland College! Fenner Sisters and Band - Thursday 25 February 7.00pm - 8.30pm.
BISHOP AUCKLAND COLLEGE,
Woodhouse Lane Bishop Auckland,
County Durham DL14 6JZ TEL: 01388 443126 (ext 2311) FAX: 01388 443075 WEB: http://www.bishopaucklandcollege.ac.uk/.
The Music Foundation students who organised the event would appreciate your support and. although there isn't a bar it is permissable to bring your own.
Hopefully the 3 gigs are far enough apart in distance and style not to have an effect on the attendance figures.
Lance.

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.
