Down on the Jersey Shore

Hi Lance,
Just thought I'd give you an update on what's happening down here on The Shore.
November 17 has Natalie Cole at the Count Basie Theatre in Redbank and Tony Bennett on the 23rd. We've also had James Cotton playing the blues in Ringwood Public Library. More blues with Richie Havens at the South Orange Performing Arts Centre.
In Madison, Nancy Nelson and Marlene Ver Planck were at the Shanghai Jazz Restaurant and Bar.
Chris Botti was at the McCarter Theatre Centre in Princeton on Monday and on Tuesday trumpet player Joe Wilder played a concert with guitarist Jack Wilkins on the Newark campus of Rutgers University.
On November 19 Mike Barris and Friends salute Louis, Django and Bessie in a concert supported by the Women's Club of Redbank and the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation.
It's part of a series of concerts called "Reckless Steamy Nights".
So, as you can see there's quite a bit happening - shame you couldn't pop over!
PS: Most of the above information is from Mike Barris' Barris Beat column in the Asbury Park Press.

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.
