ALL PARTY JAZZ APPRECIATION GROUP AWARDS 2009

Paul Bream, Jazz Services, as well as Jazz UK, have drawn our attention to the forthcoming Jazz General Election. This reminds me of the book by Colin MacInnes - "Absolute Beginners" where someone describes his ideal government as having 'Michael Foot for Prime Minister with Johnny Dankworth blowing Foreign Secretary' or words to that effect. If anyone knows the correct quotation please let me know.
This preamble leads me up to the form that has to be filled in , printed off and posted snail mail!
Now it far becomes me to influence your voting but if someone were to cast a vote for 'Bebop Spoken Here' in the Jazz Publication of the Year section then so be it...(I think in jazz/govermental terms this could be referred to as 'gerrymulliganing').
Note re voting form. On the link it gives the final date as 27 Feb 2008 - should of course be 2009.

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.
