  1. I've currently been asked to seek out a suitable recipient of the sheet-music, band parts (partic. horns/woodwind) and arrangement 'book' of highly respected Jazz and Swing musician / arranger Derek Bridge, who sadly passed 3yrs ago. This is an extensive collection of 'dots' covering an extremely wide-range. His widow would like it to go to an established band/ orchestra as a fitting 50+yr tribute to her late-husband. Contact : Chris 01642-653286.

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.
