Bebop Spoken There

Roger Ingram: "Buddy's lead trumpet book is just like playing in a marching band, up an octave. But Woody's book is musical." - (Woody Herman - Chronicles of the Herds by William D. Clancy w. Audree Coke Kenton. Pub. Schirmer Books 1995).

Mark Kermode, film critic: “His [Fletcher’s} threatening phrase [in Whiplash], ‘Not quite my tempo’ is going to become one of those quotes like ‘I’m funny how?’ or ‘You talkin’ to me.’ " (Radio Times 24-30 January 2015).

Some updates


A music student at Newcastle University, I occasionally find myself on Bebop Spoken Here - a good place to find out what musical occurrences are going on in the North East!
A few weeks ago, I noticed that Bebop Spoken Here had been at the Sound '12 Festival at the Sage, Gateshead and heard Newcastle University Sax Quartet. I thought I'd let you know that we are putting on our own concert next week on Saturday 28th of April at Live Theatre, and are playing two sets including some numbers with drums and vocals. If anybody fancied checking us out again then it'd be lovely to see you there.
Furthermore, I am also involved in another ensemble who played in the evening at Sound '12. Taupe are an original jazz trio, taking rhythmic patterned influences from the likes of Meshuggah and Dave Brubeck and seeing what happens. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in then we're playing this coming Thursday (for free!) at Bar Loco, near St James' Park. We'd probably be on around half ten but the 'Blue Rinse' evening we're part of are always a truly eclectic and interesting evening of music.
It'd be great if you could make it along to either of these, and in the meantime best wished for the continued success of the blog.

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.
