"Emily Remembered" - On The Road Again.

About 3 years back some of the most vibrant music on Tyneside was played at the Side Café - a sort of forerunner of Splinter @ The Bridge. It also coincided with the start of Bebop Spoken Here. One of the highlights of those halcyon days of yore was the session by guitarists Deirdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson and their "Remembering Emily"  programme - a tribute to the late Emily Remler. Here is a link to that review.
Earlier this year I reviewed their CD Emily Remembered which stayed on my player for quite a while.
Now, thanks to Jazz Services, the duo are taking the show back on the road.
That's the good news! The bad news is that Newcastle isn't on the agenda. Leeds' Seven Arts Centre on Nov. 6 is the nearest it gets to us. This is a Sunday afternoon gig - 1pm - so it is accessible for guitar buffs - or music lovers in general.
Check out the other dates on DC's website.

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.
