Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Bill Evans: "A composer writes something, and an orchestra interprets it--he spends maybe six months writing 10 minutes of music, but a jazz musician spends 10 minutes of playing 10 minutes of music, and he performs it himself". - (Jazz Monthly July1960).

Jazz FM – Move On Up*

(Press release)
Jazz FM has increased weekly reach to 556,000, up 19% quarter on quarter, with total hours unchanged at 1,660,000.
Listening across the UK has grown at twice the rate as in London with 56% of listeners living outside the London area compared with under 40% in Q1 2016 before Jazz FM re-launched nationally on DAB+ over a year ago. 
The weekly audience is slightly male biased at 52%, with two-thirds of listeners aged 15-54.  The audience profile has continued to skew younger with 15-34’s now representing 37% of weekly reach.

 Jazz FM’s ABC1 audience profile has increased to a record 80% of weekly reach – the highest ABC1 profile of any national radio brand, including all BBC networks.

All weekday programme audiences have increased, with Jaime Crick’s Breakfast Show attracting a record 143,000 listeners and Chris Philips’ Morning Show achieving the highest audience of the week at 189,000. Sunday attracts the station’s highest audiences of the week with 171,000 listening across the day.


Nick Pitts, Content Director, Jazz FM said “Great results, great audience growth and all a result of great effort by the team in the Jazz basement… it’s really gratifying that listeners all over the UK are enjoying our music.”
* Thanks to Curtis Mayfield.

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.
