Bebop Spoken There

Sandy Williams: "When they took us to jail a second time, everyone took a bottle from the [speakeasy] bar. They had all the chorus girls downstairs and the band upstairs. We raised so much hell, I think they were glad to see the back of us." - (Down Beat April 4 1968).

Derek Nash: “My highest profile is with Jools [Holland], as an alto player, but if I could make a living doing it I’d just play baritone and soprano.” – (Jazz Journal February 2014).

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!
Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.
