Bebop Spoken There

Curtis Stigers: “I’m a jazz singer. I’m not a saxophonist. When I stand in front of a band like the Danish Radio Big Band or Ronnie Scott’s, I usually tend to leave the instrument on the stand.” – (The Northern Echo 20 July 2017)

Folk @ The Globe: What Interested Jazz Fans Can Expect

(Preview by Ann Alex)
I know that many jazz people like all kinds of music, so here is a run-down of the Folk music events which are coming to the Globe.  The first of our series of folk gigs was last night, Jan 23 but I don’t think Blogmaster will let me do a full review so I didn’t take notes.  Suffice to say it was a smashing performance of Irish jigs and reels, Breton music and original compositions from Freya Rae (whistle, flute, clarinet) and Louis Bingham (guitar, mandolin).
And what’s to come?
Sat Feb. 20 8pm £5
The LIndie Quartet  (contemporary folk with fiddles, sax, piano)
Sat Mar. 12 8pm £5
Speldosa (spellbinding music with hammer dulcimer, harp, fiddle)
Thurs Apr. 28 7.30pm £10
Tom McConville & David Newey
 (virtuoso fiddler returns to his childhood home.  He lived in the Globe!)
And don’t forget the regular Folk and Acoustic Night, 1st Thursday of the month, 7.30pm Free, donations welcome.

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.
