Head of Steam and Hoochie Coochie.


Paul Taylor played solo piano as he'd done the previous Sunday at the Head of Steam (see his comments). Probing, explorative, improvisations that deserved a wider audience. I had hoped to hang around for the NUJO jam but Hoochie Coochie beckoned.
I'm not an authority on HipHop so I'm not the person to pass judgement on Cantaloop however, they were lively, energetic and got a good sound and drew a reasonable sized crowd including a few Pimptones.

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.
