My Two Favourite Gals!

Had to share this Facebook post by Daryl - Lance.
----- 
Just in time for Jewish New Year! I have finally found the box and folder with this (to me) very significant photo. Not only does it document my first appearance on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz (spring of 1994) an honor that paved the way for a major career turn. After our session that very day I told Marian I was auditioning for a gig at the Waldorf=Astoria. "Good luck, honey" she said and boy did that do the trick. Even more special was our friendship that developed through these many years. I deeply miss her. She was and always will be my best role model on so many levels.

I saw this earlier on FB - isn't it great! What memories! Plus, how wonderful to have Daryl with us at the Classic Jazz Party this year, with her inimitable style.

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.
