Bebop Spoken There

Jimmy Owens: "I was in California for three months and didn't get a haircut. Then I got it to the shape I like, and I've been wearing it that way for two and a half years" - (Down Beat January 25 1968).

Arturo O’Farrill: “I like to put a younger musician next to a veteran and hope each will influence the other’s thinking.” – (Down Beat September 2014).

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.

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.

PS:I don't care what your political views are - you can love or hate Cameron, Clegg, Milliband, Farage, Genghis Khan or Julius Caesar - just don't air them here!
Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.
