Tomorrow night it's Blaydon or Hoochie.

Tomorrow night at Blaydon sees the start of the Christmas Party season. Atrocious weather conditions meant that last years party had to be postponed until April by which time Santa's beard was considerably longer and greyer. Roly's taking no chances of a similar scenario this year hence the re-writing of the calendar to November 24 besides what's a month between friends!
Frank Brooker and the James Birkett Quartet provide the music which will make the journey westwards a worthwhile trip. Regulars will no doubt recall the previous gig by these five players earlier this year and look forward to a good night. Stomp off is at the slightly earlier time of 8:15 pm and admission is £6 including buffet.
Blaydon CIU Club, Garden St., Blaydon.

Meanwhile, back at Hoochie Coochie, the increasingly in demand singer Claire Kelly and her Quartet are making their debut at what is rapidly becoming the hottest spot in town. If you haven't heard her yet now's the time to catch up. With Mark Williams (gtr), Andy Champion (bs) and Adrian Tilbrook (dms) giving support you can guarantee that it will mean a thing...
8:00pm. Free.

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.
