Bebop Spoken There

Roger Ingram: "Buddy's lead trumpet book is just like playing in a marching band, up an octave. But Woody's book is musical." - (Woody Herman - Chronicles of the Herds by William D. Clancy w. Audree Coke Kenton. Pub. Schirmer Books 1995).
-----
Mark Kermode, film critic: “His [Fletcher’s} threatening phrase [in Whiplash], ‘Not quite my tempo’ is going to become one of those quotes like ‘I’m funny how?’ or ‘You talkin’ to me.’ " (Radio Times 24-30 January 2015).

Keith or Cody* Jarrett

As Keith Jarrett won't be playing The Bridge, The Cherry Tree, Hoochie Coochie or The Star readers may care to read the review by Sebastian Scotney on LondonJazzNews (and the comments!)
Lance.
PS: He also missed out on The Crescent Club, Ashington, Blaydon, The Porthole, Gateshead Legion, The Corner House, The Cluny and The Lit and Phil.
He could have played The City Hall but he was concerned that the council may have pulled it down before he got there.
The Sage was an option but it would have meant having to cancel April's 3 day jazz festival to pay him.
* Cody Jarrett - bank robber played by James Cagney in the '40s film White Heat.

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.

PS:I don't care what your political views are - you can love or hate Cameron, Clegg, Milliband, Farage, Genghis Khan or Julius Caesar - just don't air them here!
