Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Suddenly, on the jukebox comes my recording of 'One For My Baby' and John Wayne turned to me and said 'What the hell do you listen to when you're alone at three o'clock in the morning?'" – (Booklet notes to Capitol CD Ultimate Sinatra).

Above quote unearthed by Simon Spillett.

Ralph Hutchinson: "I thought I'd gone as far musically back home [Newcastle/UK] and I wanted to get ahead of the boys. I wanted to hear Parker and Gillespie and Kenton." – (Down Beat, November 18, 1949).

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.
