Next Month at Blaydon

Sunday 15th Sep    8pm    Adm. £4.00 
Paul Edis Sextet
Paul brings his brilliant and much acclaimed sextet. As heard on Radio 3's 'Jazz Record Requests'. The cream of young NE jazz musicians. 
When Paul first expanded his acclaimed trio to form a sextet, it was soon being hailed as "one of the most accomplished and original bands of recent years", and it's certainly lived up to the billing. 
With a front line of Graham Hardy on trumpet, Graeme Wilson on sax and Chris Hibbard on trombone, it has the look of a classic hard bop band, and it certainly has the drive and energy of a Horace Silver or Art Blakey ensemble. But Paul's imaginative arrangements of jazz standards, and a growing book of original compositions, make sure that there's also a distinctly contemporary feel. If this is music that has its roots in the 1960s, its blossoms are absolutely of today! 


Released in March 2012, 'There Will Be Time' is the debut album from the Paul Edis Sextet. It features 12 original compositions penned by Edis and saxophonist Graeme Wilson that ‘should be in every band's library alongside Joyspring and Take The A Train’ (Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here). With praise from jazz luminaries including Greg Abate, ‘Very nice, different approach, great playing, nice tunes!’ There Will Be Time has also attracted some very positive reviews, 'clear strength in compositional creativity; it never falters anywhere', (Josh Jennings, Jazz Shaped) and in August 2012 the track 'Ravelations' was played on Radio 3 (Jazz Record Requests).

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.
