On Safari in Pink Lane.

You should have been in Jazz Café on Sunday! Three young Chinese students (girls) screamed "It's a bat!" It wasn't of course, it was a very large Queen Bee. The bee settled between the back of the bench seat and the window. 
Enter the Great White Hunter - Keith Crombie. Alas, even his attempts to encase the enormous insect inside a pint glass failed and it looked like Rentakill or a Rapid Response Squad (they know where the Jazz Café is) may have had to be called in. However, a very brave student managed to get the honeybearer into the glass and whip a CD over the top to stop it escaping whereupon it was subsequently released into the wild - Pink Lane.
When one of the girls said "What happens if it tries to get back in"? Crombie said that he wouldn't let it in as it didn't have a student's union card. 
There are moments when KC does have a sense of humour.

I heard it was buzzing in there.

Did the bee sing 'You are my honey honeysuckle, I am the bee'?

Hardly Ann - this was the Jazz Café so naturally it sang Bee-Bop.

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
