There is an expression "What goes around, comes around", and this was true of our "rendezvous" with Rendezvous. Four and a half years have passed since the last appearance which was a shock. Madeleine Peyroux sings Don't Wait Too Long and AJC has certainly done that. During this time changes have taken place as musicians move on but this combination proved to be a versatile group as they performed their multi skills throughout

the evening. We got four vocalists for the price of one and their talents were extended to other instruments which gave the audience a lot of pleasure throughout the extensive programme of twenty four melodies. Despite feeling unwell Iain interpreted some lyrics in his ever popular humorous style while Life is a Rose put a smile on everyone's face. Bass, drums and keyboard supported the front line while Maureen introduced the items. We enjoyed the evening while one of our members commented that this had been an enjoyable and relaxing evening in the company of good musicians delivering well known standards to which we could relate.
Next Jazz Night - Wednesday November 6 at 8.00 p.m. GAVIN LEE AND HIS DIXIELAND BAND
.See you there

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
