Keith Armstrong Book Launch

Not a jazz item but Dr. Keith Armstrong, poet extraordinaire, is a jazz fan and is supportive of this site - remember his Chet Baker poem? - he also has another jazz work in the pipeline which will be premiered here so I felt we should draw attention to his forthcoming book launches.

    Something of a tenuous jazz link to Jack Common...he was born at no.44 Third Avenue, Heaton - just round the corner from the Chillingham public house on Chillingham Road! All you Chilli jazzers - next time you're there walk round to no.44 and read the blue plaque on the wall at the front of the house.

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.
