Calling all bassmen

Until recently relocating to New York, Phil Donkin has been one of the most in demand up and coming young bass players on the European scene today. He has performed and recorded with some the most cutting edge musicians in the world. Since graduating from the Guildhall school of music in London some years ago, Phil has worked with many great UK musicians such as Kenny Wheeler, Julian Arguelles, Tim Garland, Stan Sulzmann and Gwilym Simcock to name a few. In more recent years Phil's reputation has spread beyond the UK and he has toured Europe with people such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Marc Copland, Bill Stewart, Greg Osby, Ari Hoenig, Jonathan Kreisberg, Terrell Stafford, David Binney, Tyshawn Sorey, Nils Wogram's Root 70 and many others. Phil has also performed with some jazz legends such as Quincy Jones, Roger Kellaway, Eddie Henderson, and John Abercrombie.
Phillip Donkin is in Sunderland until Nov 29 visiting family. He is available for one to one tuition or workshops. Interested parties please contact him on 07706 006 795.

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.
