Bebop Spoken There

Willie 'The Lion' Smith: "I developed my left [hand] because I was always using my right for drinking." - (Down Beat January 1, 1947).

Trish Clowes: “There’s so much music that I love in jazz history but for me I can’t possibly recreate these beautiful records and I wouldn’t want to because that’s not the point.” – (Jazzwise November 2014).

Lyndon Anderson Band @ The Central Bar, Gateshead.

Lyndon Anderson - Vocals, Harmonica and Guitar. Davey Dormand - Guitar. Christine Wilson - Bass. Neal Wood - Drums.
A rocking two sets from one of the area's better blues bands. The leader's wailing harp and his blues holloring sounds like he was born in Chicago or a ghetto in Philly.
Davy Dormond, on an assortment of guitars including the increasingly popular baritone (lower pitched than a standard guitar but higher than a bass - it has a mellower sound without losing the cutting edge so essential to a twelve bar thrash) played red rooster riffs and back alley bottleneck that brought the already hot room up to boiling point.
Christine Wilson, on bass, walked the dog effectively yet unobtrusively whilst Neal made sure nobody slept as he drove them forward like a 16 wheel drive on the Devil's Highway.
Only disappointment was the, by comparision, relatively small turnout.
Next week the Ray Stubbs All-Stars.

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.
