Bebop Spoken There

Jimmy Giuffre: "Jim Hall, Monty Budwig and I will just have to extemporise. I'm always interested in just trying to create. I am not interested in trying to sell music." - (Melody Maker March 5, 1960). From Colin Aitchison's amazing collection).

Antonio Sanchez: “When I was starting as a sideman, it was always exciting when somebody new would call me to work.” – (Down Beat July 2015).

Tonight.

The ZOE GILBY QUARTET are tonight's attraction, along with some fine dining, at Jesmond's Cherry Tree Restaurant. The vocal fireworks will be set off circa 7:45 pm. If your tastes run to classy modern jazz vocal sounds and cuisine to sell your granny for then ring 0191 2399924 to book.
If, on the other hand, you prefer a band with a banjo then the VIEUX CARRE JAZZMEN are down the road apiece at the Corner House in Heaton. 8:45 pm is stomping off time.
If instead you decide to stay in with a can of Speckled Hen (5.2%) then BBC 4 show The World of Nat 'King' Cole at 7:00 pm and a Tony Bennett Concert at 10:30 pm.

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.
