Tony Bennett BBC2 Sat 14th 7.30 pm

Tony Bennett: The Music Never Ends Synopsis: Legendary crooner Tony Bennett reflects over his life story with his friend and jazz enthusiast Clint Eastwood.
In this Arena documentary 'The Music Never Ends', Bennett traces his musical lineage through a wealth of jazz archive and much loved favourite musicals, highlighted with footage from his 2005 performance at the Montreal Jazz Festival. A true showbiz professional, Bennett continues to sing all his songs with tremendous gusto and enjoyment whilst presenting a well-rounded and affectionate portrait of his life and work. The film offers a glittering cast of contributors including Martin Scorsese, Mel Brooks, Mitch Miller, Harry Belafonte and Alec Baldwin.
My thanks to Val, Jim & Liz for drawing this program to my attention although I must confess that I have my reservations about the 'glittering cast of contributers'.

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.
