Bebop Spoken There

Aubrey Franks: "It must be stressed that there's a great deal of essential drudgery attached to learning an instrument and the man who thinks it can be skimped is fooling himself - (Melody Maker May 6, 1950). From Colin Aitchison's amazing collection).

David Murray: “He [Ornette Coleman] also warned me, ‘You have to be careful on that tenor, because you’re gonna attract some strange women on it’” - (Jazz Times September 2015).

First Tuesday Live at the Robin Hood

Found this on Facebook. It may not be jazz - more of an artistic 'Go As you Please' - but there may be some jazzers involved looking at the guest list. -----
Description: Fantastic night of music and comedy and anything else that could be considered entertainment! On the first Tuesday of every month, performers from all areas of the entertainment industry gather to socialise and entertain ( if they wish) in the north east's best public house, the ROBIN HOOD in Jarrow, Tyne and Wear. From the novice newcomer to the seasoned professional, this 'night' offers a friendly and intimate atmosphere in the newly refurbished "Music Hall", formerly the home of the Jarrow Brewery Company. We aim to develop a format for a regional television show which will recreate the atmosphere and show off the talent from First Tuesday Live at the Robin Hood. Please arrive early as we expect capacity to be reached soon after the doors are opened! Robin Hood, Primrose Hill Jarrow NE32 5UB. Check out here.

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.
