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).

Chilli Treat Tonight

Tonight looks like being an unmissable night at The Chillingham, Chillingham Road, Heaton, Newcastle. Headlining is jazz/blues/rock chick Mo Scott's trio.
The trio - stylistically adaptable guitarist Rod Sinclair, who tonight I'm sure will be in earthy/cool bottleneck mode, Neil Harland, considered by many to be the doyen of the current crop of bassists and, of course, Mo.
Mo Scott can strut with the best of them her throaty vocals raunchy loud or seductive soft. Having heard the trio at the Maggy Bank earlier this year and at the Corner House before that I know it will be a night to remember.
Also, New England's gift to Newcastle has returned from France so Dave Weisser will be putting his chops around Vincent Bach's mouthpiece as well as laying down a few choice vocals backed by the Take It To The Bridge mob.
All this for a pound? Eat your heart out Sainsbury's...
Lance.

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.
