Bebop Spoken There

Newcastle Evening Chronicle (1930): "...questioning, incidentally, the right of either [saxophone or bagpipes] to be looked upon as a musical instrument instead of as one of torture." - (Melody Maker June 1930). From Colin Aitchison's amazing collection).

Joel Harrison: “It’s incredibly hard to play bebop on guitar, harder than on saxophone.” – (Jazz Times August 2015)

Third Granddaughter for Bobby Carr.

James Carr, son of the legendary trumpet player Bobby Carr who is never far from these pages, reports that his (James') partner Gemma gave birth on May 12 to a baby girl - Lily. If Bobby had still been with us this would have been his third granddaughter.
Congratulations!
Lance.

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.
