Tommorrow - an Evening of Contrast

If you like your Jazz to be On The Outside then tomorrow night you will be heading for the Bridge Hotel where the Mikolaj Trzaska Trio are presented in concert by the OTO Wing of Jazz North East in conjunction with Splinter @ the Bridge.
Polish saxophonist Trzaska is backed by Olie Brice (bs) and Mark Sanders (dms). 8:00pm £7/£5.
-----
However, if your tastes are more On The Inside then The Sage is the place to be for Django Bates' Beloved Bird project.
Pianist Django, along with Peter Eldh (bs) and Peter Bruun (dms), pays tribute to the immortal Charlie Parker with his re-working of such bebop classics as Hot House, Billie's Bounce, My Little Suede Shoes etc. - this is the one!
8:00pm. Hall Two. £16.50/£7.50.

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.
