Jazz UK No. 109


The February/March edition of Jazz UK has Bebop Spoken Here featured in The Guest Spot. Yes we are right there on page 20/21 - follow this link then go to downloads to discover more.
Page 21 also includes our obituary on Keith Crombie. Sadly, Ray Chester missed the deadline (I hope you'll forgive my unfortunate choice of words although I think Ray is probably having a chuckle if Jazz Uk's circulation reaches that far!).

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.
