Bebop Spoken There

Kathyrn Williams: “I got into Miles Davis when I was a teenager. But I’m nowhere near as knowledgeable as Anthony [Kerr]: he is an encyclopedia of jazz, with a real in-depth, academic knowledge. I’m just a fan.” – (Jazz Journal December 2017).

Steve Voce: “He [Alan Lomax] was one of the best musical researchers, whose amazing output seems not to have been impaired by the fact that he was under continuous investigation by the FBI from 1942 to 1979.” – (Jazz Journal December 2017).

Pizza Pull Plug

The monthly jazz gigs at Newcastle's Pizza Express have now ceased. This means that the Debra Milne Ensemble's gig there, scheduled for September 12, will not take place.
Better news for Debra and her ensemble is a gig at the Salsa Restaurant on Westgate Rd. just a few doors down from The Star Inn. This is on Saturday September 28 and is the first of what is hoped to be a series of monthly Saturday night gigs organised by the Pink Lane Co-op. In between, on Friday September 12, at the Lit and Phil even further down Westgate Rd, Debra and co can be heard in concert. At this rate our girl will be as much a part of the Westgate Rd. architecture as the Wetherspoon's pub.

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.
