Bebop Spoken There

Aubrey Franks: "It must be stressed that there's a great deal of essential drudgery attached to learning an instrument and the man who thinks it can be skimped is fooling himself - (Melody Maker May 6, 1950). From Colin Aitchison's amazing collection).

-----

David Murray: “He [Ornette Coleman] also warned me, ‘You have to be careful on that tenor, because you’re gonna attract some strange women on it’” - (Jazz Times September 2015).

VERSE & JAZZ for International Women’s Day

Newcastle City Library:  Friday 8 March, 12.00 – 1.00 pm
Writer Gordon Phillips and singer Gabriele Heller with her band Gabriele mit drei are the entertainers for International Women’s Day.  The pieces are inspired by this year’s theme of “gaining momentum.”
PREACHER WOMAN BLUES

This far and no further says the preacher man,
And me the preacher woman - and that be all I can.
And me the preacher woman – and that be all I can.
But the Good Book it don’t say never,
No the Good Book it don’t say never,
The Good Book it don’t say never,
It says woman equals man.

This far and no further says the chief layman.
And me the preacher woman water flowers when I can.
And me the preacher woman water flowers when I can.
But the Good Book it don’t say never,
No the Good Book it don’t say never,
The Good Book it don’t say never,
It says woman equals man.

This far and no further is the word of man.
And me the preacher woman – and that be all I can.
And me the preacher woman – and that be all I can.
But the Good Book it don’t say never,
No the Good Book it don’t say never,
The Good Book it don’t say never,
It says woman equals man. 

G. F. Phillips

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.
