Bebop Spoken There

Dee Barton: "The reason for my staying with the sticks [drums as opposed to trombone] is that I've always wanted to be in the driving seat. If I'm going anywhere, I like to do the driving." - (Down Beat April 18 1968).

Roberto Fonseca: ”In my first group, I played drums. It was a Beatles group. I was Ringo!” - (Down Beat October 2013).

Well done Simon Spillett.

News just in is that Simon Spillett has won the tenor sax category in the 2011 British Jazz Awards.
An article by Simon can be read in the current Jazz UK magazine.
Let's hope this encourages local promoters to book Simon - it's about time his talents were heard in Newcastle.
Lance.
PS: All the winners are listed on LondonJazz.

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.
