Bebop Spoken There

Michael Janisch: “I definitely have a completely different perception of the States on a political level, getting the news over here [in Britain], or just the way Europeans view America that was a big awakening.” – (Jazzwise October 2015).

James Moody: “[On practising] If you don't use it, you lose it. And that applies to everything--and when I say everything, I mean everything!” – (Jazz Times March 2004).

Tonight @ The Customs House, South Shields...

...promises to be an evening of great music with the Customs House Big Band and popular singer Ruth Lambert. The emphasis is on 'Music From The Shows' which means they have just about every great song ever written to choose from (hopefully this will not include ALW!)
Starts at 7:30pm.
PS: Talking big bands, I've just added my doubtful skills to the Bright Street Big Band who are Sunderland based and rehearse every 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesday. They are currently low on trombone players so any slide-men out there looking for a reading blow let me know and I'll put you in touch.

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.
