If I Were A Bell-Becky Kilgore Group


That wonderful vocalist Becky Kilgore is appearing at the Norwich Jazz Party next May. This strikes me as an opportunity for promoters to grab her whilst she's over here. I'd love to hear Becky live and, as Norwich is a bit far for me, perhaps some of our Northern jazz organisations could come up with some ideas?

Two of my all time favourite CDs feature Becky. 'Remembering Maxine' with the Bobby Gordon Trio (Bobby a unique, impish clarinetist who doesn't play a lot of notes because he doesn't need to) and 'I saw Stars' featuring, among some great players, the best pure acoustic guitar rhythm playing I've ever heard - by Bucky Pizzarelli. And for delightful, warm, sincere singing well, what more can you say.

I too have those albums as well as a duo set with Dave Frishberg all fabulous.

Yes she is so engaging, her voice is clear as a bell too! That next band number at the fade out "I'll know" is a winner too

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.
