London Jazz Festival Update - STRAYHORN THE SONGWRITER MOVES FROM PURCELL ROOM

The performance of Strayhorn The Songwriter, which features two special singers in China Moses (one of the stars of the Jazz Voice gala which opened the Festival) and Alexander Stewart, with new arrangements of Strayhorn classics like Lush Life and Take the A Train, has sold out in the Purcell Room on Saturday 20 November, and will now move across to the Queen Elizabeth Hall to take the slot in which Ute Lemper would have played. The concert is curated by Frank Griffith and Alex Webb with a fascinating narrative from Sirena Riley. Tickets are on sale at £20 + bkg. Tickets for Purcell Room concert will be valid for Queen Elizabeth Hall – Southbank Centre will contact bookers direct. The show will begin at 7.45pm Ute Lemper’s concert this Saturday 20 November has been postponed for medical reasons – we hope to announce a new date tomorrow. southbankcentre.co.uk / 0844 847 9910

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.
