Bebop Spoken There

Hugh Masekela: “I advise every kid to check out their past because without a past you are in limbo.” (Songlines December 2017)

Leo Richardson: “I think your image is really important. You look at those old Blue Note recordings and you look at the liner note, the booklet and they’re in the studio and they’re wearing shirt and ties. They used to wear suits all the time.” – (Jazzwise December 2017/January 2018)

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.

New Century Ragtime Orchestra News

The New Century Ragtime Orchestra is delighted to announce a return visit by two international stars of jazz piano – Stephanie Trick (USA) and Paulo Alderighi (Italy), who will be performing with the NCRO at Gateshead's Caedmon Hall on Sunday evening, 26 July (concert starts at 7.30 pm).  The Caedmon Hall is part of the Central Library, Prince Consort Road, Gateshead NE8 4LN, and there will be a licensed bar and ample free car parking.
Stephanie and Paulo have been performing together since 2010 across the USA, Europe and Japan, and this is one of their rare UK appearances.  Stephanie performs in the ragtime, stride and boogie woogie styles of Fats Waller and James P Johnson whereas Paulo focuses on the music of Erroll Garner, Earl Hines and Teddy Wilson.  Stephanie and Paulo will be performing solo, duo, and with the band, and last year's concert was a highly memorable evening's entertainment featuring two world-class jazz musicians.   Try looking them up on YouTube for a sneak preview!
Last year was a sell-out, and tickets (£15) are already going fast, so to secure your seat please reserve your ticket by calling Dave Kerr on 0191 281 4011, or by emailing him

Phil Rutherford
The New Century Ragtime Orchestra
This twelve-piece orchestra plays music from the dawn of Ragtime in the 1890’s through to the early Swing Era of the 1930’s.
Lovingly recreated from the original sheet music and painstakingly scored for full ensemble, we perform not only ragtime composers such as Scott Joplin but also the classic jazz and hot dance music of the 1920’s, and the early swing of Duke Ellington.

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.
