Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Parker: “You never know what's going to happen when you listen to music. All kinds of things can suddenly pop up.– (Down Beat January 28, 1953).

Alan Plater: “He [Terry Chaplin] sometimes played records at Jill's house, but music born in the bars and brothels of New Orleans did not sit happily in the semi-detached desirability of an executive estate.– (The Beiderbecke Affair by Alan Plater, Methuen Books, 1985).

Rosemary Squires Cancer Appeal Show

Forgive this rather bold approach but those who live within reasonable distance may like to know that, as a feature of her Diamond Anniversary in the business, there is to be 'An Audience with...LIFE IS A SONG' Rosemary's current touring show - as a Charity Matinee for the Royal Marsden Hospital Cancer Appeal at the Epsom Playhouse on Wednesday 21st April 2010 at 2.30pm. Tickets £10.50 from 01372 742555 or 742227.
So why not take a half day off work, get someone else to feed the cat, or whatever, and come along to a family afternoon of music and fun. Naturally she wants to maximise the benefit for this worthy charity.
However, should you be faint hearted or want to take the easy way out (joke!) then Liz Biddle of Upbeat Management, would be delighted to receive donations! (Liz by the way is not promoting this as an 'Agent' - on the contrary she is sponsoring at her own expense).
Donation Cheques should be made out to 'Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, Registered Charity 1095197 and sent to Upbeat Management, Larg House, Woodcore Grove, Coulsdon, Surrey CR5 2QQ.
Though, if you can make it, Rosemary would much prefer to see you there if only for a chat after and, by the way, bring your neighbours and friends or, if you belong to any local organisation perhaps to publish details of this event in any newsletter, parish or church magazine etc.
Thank you,
Frank Lockyer (Husband and Manager)

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.
