Today Looks Good

Lots happening today. Lunchtime has the JAZZ ESQUIRES at the Porthole by North Shields, Ferry Landing. Expect some surprises from the former Squadronaires' drummer.
Down river, Cullercoats' Crescent Club, the here, there and everywhere VIEUX CARRE JAZZMEN are stomping off at 1300 hours. Up at the Lambton Arms atop Eighton Banks, the equally ubiquitous MAINE STREET JAZZMEN and OLIVE tell it like it is.
Tonight it is piano players all round.
The ALAN GLEN TRIO at the Chilli on Chillingham Rd in the leafy Newcastle suburb of Heaton - another unmissable session.
Up the Spine Road to Ashington for the PAUL EDIS TRIO at the Elephant Jazz Club.
Down Hartlepool way the JEREMY McMURRAY QUARTET can be heard at The Causeway.
A veritable bag of sweets.

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.
