ACV (Mk 2) to debut in Edinburgh

(Report by Russell/photo of Andy Champion courtesy of Mike Tilley).
Andy Champion’s ACV is reborn. A new line-up – Chris Sharkey, Ollie Dover, Matthew Bourne and Joost Hendrickx – can be heard live on Jazz on 3 this Monday at 11:00pm. A late-night set in the BBC’s Blue Tent at the Edinburgh Festival will feature new material written by bassist Champion. Essential listening. Earlier on Monday evening Proms Late Extra (Radio 3, 10:00pm) includes a set by the Mark Pringle Trio. Pianist Pringle brings his trio to Newcastle’s Jazz Café on Friday 11 September. Advance tickets are available by telephoning the venue – 0191 222 9882.
London Jazz blog’s Sebastian Scotney looks at the connection between jazz and sports on Jazz Line-Up (Saturday, Radio 3, 5:00pm – one hour earlier than usual). Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz (midnight, Saturday, on Radio 3) celebrates the career of Johnny Griffin. On Sunday evening at five past ten on BBC4 parts three and four of Sinatra: All or Nothing at All are to be screened back-to-back (first shown yesterday).
On Friday 28 August tune-in to BBC 4 for three hours and more of what promises to be a feast of jazz. Friday Night at the Proms: The Story of Swing (first broadcast live on Radio 3, August 11) does what it says on the tin. Clare Teal, Guy Barker and a cast of thousands swing the Albert Hall. The so-called ‘jazz diva’ label often attributed to legendary figures in the jazz world is examined in Queens of Jazz: the Joy and Pain of the Jazz Divas (BBC 4, 10:45pm) following the Proms concert.

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.
