Bebop Spoken There

Dave Gelly: “From 1 January 1920, when prohibition was imposed in the US, people didn’t stop drinking, they just stopped drinking legally.” – (Jazz Journal October 2017).

Regina Carter: “When I was a teenager, I would daydream about going out on a date and dancing to Ella’s music.” (Down Beat October 2017).

In [Group] Theory one not to miss

Tonight (Thursday) at Newcastle’s Jazz Café four musicians from Durham University will play two sets of original compositions. The quartet played the venue last night as members of the Durham University Big Band, and, quite possibly, slept there overnight! Pianist Matthew Jacobs has been working with NYJO and alto saxophonist Dan Garel has recently returned from studying at McGill University, Montreal. The duo will be joined by DUBB mates Dylan Churches, bass, and drummer Tristan Bacon. Last night’s tremendous big band session whets the appetite. What, exactly, could we expect to hear? First class musicianship, that’s for sure. Anyone with a passing interest in the ‘original composition’ end of the jazz spectrum will be at the Jazz Café tonight. Eight o’clock start.

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.
