Bebop Spoken There

Ambrose Akinmusire: “I love teaching, and I love the exchange. And I’m starting to accept my role as a mentor. That sounds weird to say. But I can’t avoid the fact that there are younger musicians who are watching me.” – (Down Beat September 2017).

Mike Gibbs: “Rehearsals are a chance for players to learn my degree of vagueness.” – (Jazzwise September 2017).

BRAVO SARAH ELLEN HUGHES

Popular vocalist, ex NYJO singer and follower of Bebop Spoken Here, Sarah Ellen Hughes, has won the prestigious Jazz Voices Competition in Lithuania. Click here for LondonJazz details - hope she got back before the volcanic dust arrived. Visit Sarah's own site for note by note description of the Lithuanian Experience.

PS: Check out her CD Darning the Dream - it's on Spotify.
PPS: You can catch Sarah Ellen Hughes at The Maltings, Berwick on June 4 (not 2), The Cherry Tree Restaurant, Jesmond on June 28, and Bishop Auckland Town Hall on June 29. This is part of her CD launching tour and can, of course, be heard in other civilised parts of the UK.

  1. Thanks, Lance for the blog! I'm looking forward to my NE tour.

    Love the picture by the way - a real bling necklace!

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.
