Theo Jackson

As I've often mentioned in the past, there seems to be a conveyer built churning out women jazz singers. Not that I'm objecting - may they continue to delight my ears and elsewhere. However, just for a change, it would be good to have a factory producing a few more men serenading the moon.
Et Voila!
The Jam Factory in Oxford has delivered!

Theo Jackson
Date: 26 May, 2013
Venue: The Jam Factory, Hollybush Row, 27 Park End St, Oxford OX1 1HU
Start Time: 8:15pm
Description: As part of his UK tour, Theo will be playing at this relaxed and intimate venue. One definitely for the Bank Holiday weekend!

Pianist/vocalist composer has that contemporary Tormé feel that few achieve, he plays good piano and stands comparision with other better known artists.
Check out the website and listen to the samples then book a ticket to Oxford..

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.
