Bebop Spoken There

Brubeck is Brewing

This coming week could be said to be Brubeck Week. Not only do we have Brubecks Play Brubeck at The Sage, Gateshead on Tuesday, Nov. 30 (7:30pm) - see interview - but on the same night, at the same time on BBC4 there is some Jazz 625 archive footage from 1964 of the original Brubeck Quartet.
On BBC4 later that week, on Friday Dec 3, there is an Arena program - Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way. It is shown from 9:00pm - 10:30pm.
All in all a good week for those, of which I am one, who are Brubeckly inclined.
Lance.

Hi Lance

Once brewed...yet more Brubeck. Radio 2 broadcasts a two part interview with Brubeck senior. Jamie Cullum's weekly programme sees Young Brit Turk talking with Venerable Turk. Pt 1-Tuesday 30th November(7:00 pm), pt 2 -Tuesday December 7th (7:00 pm)continues the chat and features the Brubeck sons in performance. Over on Radio Radio 4 on 3rd December (11:30 am)there is a half hour documentary about the man and his music.

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.
