Student Performances @ King's Hall, Newcastle University.

John Law played solo piano at lunchtime in the King's Hall (I couldn't be there - if someone reading this attended the performance - how about a review?) and later in the afternoon it was the turn of some of the many talented student musicians attending Newcastle University to take the spotlight. Arriving just in time to hear applause for the all female Clarinet Quartet it was a treat to hear them play Dave Brubeck's Blue Rondo a la Turk. The must-hear combo was Hannabiell & Midnight Blue. The band was introduced by a course lecturer as ''the inimitable'' Hannabiell & Midhnight Blue. How true! Bass trombone dynamo Hannabiell Saunders produced another all action (all too short) set as vocalist, percussionist and of course big sounding trombone star. Mainstay percussionist Yilis del Carmen Suriel and tenor saxophonist Helen Papioannou are key members of the band and were in the groove from the off. The boys in the rhythm section (vibes, electric bass and drums) funked as required. Hannabiell can be heard next week - Wednesday 11th May - in a double bill with folk star Nuala Kennedy at the Head of Steam in Newcastle (8:00 pm - folk jam session, 9:30 pm - bands perform, 12 midnight - dj (until 1:00 am). Admission: £7.00. (£5.00. NUS card holders). Russell

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
