London Jazz Festival News

The London Jazz Festival is but one week away with a host of mouth-watering events due to unfold across the capital. Something for everyone I guess. Although we are situated somewhat away from the action up here I know there will be several - myself included - making the trip. These days you can do it in under 3 hours and, with a bit of shopping around can usually pick up a bargain priced train ticket.
To check out the program click here - you'll be spoilt for choice!
To launch the festival on Nov. 12, at the Barbican, Dougray Scott host's Jazz Voice: Celebrating a Century of Song. This features a host of vocalists including Jacqui Dankworth and Georgie Fame and an orchestra led by Guy Barker.

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.
