Autumn in Old York - by Liz

Today, whilst in M&S, I heard Sinatra-like sounds floating down from the first floor. Up I went, and there was this young guy looking splendid in D.J. and singing " Just The Way You Look Tonight." He was so good, so natural too with the mike, and smiling at all the ladies. It was a Macmillan charity event. Next to him they were giving away free chocs... What with the lovely melody, the chocs & the warmth of the store, it was almost too much at 1 o'clock in the afternoon... I felt quite overwhelmed, and wished it was for real !!

Aah bless your bobbysox!
Coincidentally, talking to Ruth L on Wednesday she was telling me that she had a great gig at M&S York last year.
Definitely the place to shop - and they do some great tv commercials too.

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.
