Bebop Spoken There

Peter Vacher: “The Hopbine [public house] is a Tesco Express now, having been reinvented successively as Desi Dons, Bootsy Brogans, the Dog and Duck and, before that, the Chequered Flag.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

Kyle Eastwood: “Naturally I listened to pop music when I was a kid – I’d spend two hours a day hearing it on the school bus! – but the very first music I heard in the house and the first concerts I went to were jazz.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

Alan Barnes/Greg Abate Quintet @ Corner House, Newcastle July 12.

Alan Barnes (alto); Greg Abate (tenor); Stu Collingwood (piano); Mick Shoulder (bass); Adam Sinclair (drums)
When we discovered the US sax player Greg Abate last July we just knew we had to put him together with the UK star Alan Barnes. They are a perfect fit and guaranteed to provide North East lovers of mainstream jazz with a great night's entertainment. They were so keen to renew an acquaintance they made some years ago that both agreed to fit in this one-off Northern appearance in the middle of a hectic festival season in the south. Don't miss the chance to hear them.
Backing them are two thirds of the Paul Edis Trio - Paul himself will be at one of Alan's stop-offs, the Swanage Festival, with ACV. He's replaced by one of the North East's most experienced keyboard players.
Capacity at the Corner House is limited so we recommend you to buy your tickets early and avoid disappointment : Alan Barnes has a tendency to fill venues, particularly in the company of such an illustrious front line partner. Tickets are on sale now at J.G.Windows in the Central Arcade, Newcastle.
CORNER HOUSE HOTEL
Heaton Road, Newcastle NE6 5RP

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.
