Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Michael James: "...if Ellis [Herb] has merits they are definitely not these [fantastic fire and drive]". - (Review of Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre (LP). Jazz Monthly May 1960).

Paul Edis Preview(s)

This week could be said to be Paul Edis Week with at least two known gigs listed.
Roly has already posted info on the trio's gig at Blaydon on Thursday (May 13) Paul being the Bill Evansish pianist enigmatically referred to by Roly.
This should provide the impetus to catch Bill/Paul with the Sextet on Sunday (May 16) at the Bridge Hotel, Newcastle, as part of the Splinter @ The Bridge series of Sunday nighters.
There is new material and new faces in the sextet line-up for this gig. John Hirst is on drums, Andy Champion plays bass and Alex Leathard will be sliding around on trombone.
For some audio samples of what to expect check out Paul's MySpace link.
Despite being listed as being by the trio the first two items are in fact by the Sextet.

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.
