Bebop Spoken There

Vadim Neselovskyi, Professor of Jazz Piano, Berklee College of Music: “Every pianist has to deal with a very complex left-hand part at some point. This is the essential pianistic experience – to split your brain into two halves and execute two very different tasks at the same time.” – (Down Beat September 2017).

Roscoe Mitchell: “To me, improvisation is trying to improve your skills so you can make these on-point compositional decisions. That takes practice.” – (Down Beat September 2017)

Tcha Limberger to play Sage Gateshead!

(Preview by Russell)
Multi instrumentalist Tcha Limberger is returning to Sage Gateshead. This Sunday, October 2, Limberger will be in Hall Two with his Budapest Gypsy Orchestra. Belgian born Tcha, of the Manouche tradition, will lead his seven piece band in a programme centred on the folk music traditions of Central Europe. On this current tour Limberger will be playing violin – he is also an accomplished guitarist – alongside fellow string instrumentalists Olah Norbert (viola, or the ‘brac’ bowed alternative), Ruzo Istvan on violin and Szegfu Karoly, double bass.

The Budapest Gypsy Orchestra’s concert performances have won acclaim from many quarters; the improvising element attracted praise from the respected Jazz Mann blog, Songlines and F Roots magazines similarly heaped superlatives upon Limberger’s hot outfit. The Sage Gateshead concert should have wide appeal. Jazz fans will appreciate   astonishing, virtuoso playing, a broader audience will perhaps draw parallels with the Bueno Vista Social Club phenomenon. Concert goers in Hall Two will marvel at Feher Istvan’s cimbalom. A cross-stringed instrument akin to a piano or dulcimer, Istvan can justifiably be described as a master musician. As a piece of furniture the cimbalom is a work of art!

Having released an album titled Django! and recorded with Lollo Meier there is much to tempt the jazz fan along to Tcha Limberger’s Budapest Gypsy Orchestra in Hall Two at Sage Gateshead on Sunday 2nd October. To book your seat call 0191 443 4661.  As a taster be sure to tune in to Radio 3’s In Tune programme at five o’clock today, Monday 26th, to hear Limberger playing live in the studio.

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.
