Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

John Postgate: "Oscar Peterson played a good solo in 1954..." - (Jazz Monthly August 1960)

Bill Evans: "A composer writes something, and an orchestra interprets it--he spends maybe six months writing 10 minutes of music, but a jazz musician spends 10 minutes of playing 10 minutes of music, and he performs it himself". - (Jazz Monthly July1960).

Jazz on BBC Radio and closer to home

The (cold) wind of change blows across Radio 3’s jazz output this holiday weekend. Jazz Record Requests has a new presenter (the excellent Alyn Shipton) as long-time host Geoffrey Smith moves over to the graveyard shift (midnight) to present a new weekly programme imaginatively titled Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz. 
Radio 2 visits the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, on Sunday Wogan (yes, Terry Wogan) gets in on the act and Gil Evans is remembered in this the centenary year of his birth. 
Radio 4 gives listeners ‘another chance to hear’ Tuesday’s broadcast documentary on Mahalia Jackson. Oh yes, Lickety Split (see LL’s Lit & Phil review) can be heard on Radio Tyneside tomorrow (Sunday, 5:00 pm). The schedule looks something like this:
SATURDAY
Conjuring Halie – Mahalia Jackson (Radio 4, 3:30 pm)
Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3, 4:30 pm)
Jamie Cullum – live from Cheltenham Jazz Festival (Radio 2, 4:00 pm)
Jazz from the Terrace (Radio Tyneside, 8:00 pm)*
Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz (Radio 3, midnight)
SUNDAY
Weekend Wogan - Melody Gardot in session (11:00 am)
The Geordie Hour - featuring Lickety Split (Radio Tyneside, 5:00 pm)*
Clare Teal – a feature on Gil Evans (Radio 2
MONDAY
Melody Gardot – live from Cheltenham Jazz Festival (Radio 2, 6:00 pm)
Big Band Special – more Gil Evans (Radio 2, 9:30 pm)
*Radio Tyneside is Tyneside’s 24 hour hospital radio service. Local listeners can tune in on 1575 AM (medium wave) or listen on line www.radiotyneside.co.uk

  1. melody Gardot did a great set, which I heard over here in France on Jamie mcullum. I wished I could have been there, and that I could hear Melody sing again. but there are no re broadcasts outside UK. 'Tant pis', as my french neighbours say.

  3. Apologies to anyone who tuned in last night to listen to Jazz From the Terrace at eight o'clock. The programme has been rescheduled and is now being broadcast at nine o'clock. There is a repeat for night owls at 1:00 am Thursday!

  4. The host of the Geordie Hour on Radio Tyneside is Gary Hogg from Cramlington. Gary is a regular at Ashington Jazz Club. Today I believe he will play a tracks from Lickety Split & Keith Stephens Hot Club Trio. (No doubt he will mention Keiths charity concert at Ashington next Friday)

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.
