Bebop Spoken There

Howard Riley: “When I started out playing jazz back in the late 50s, early 60s, if you wanted a gig you had to learn some standards.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

Eric Harland: “I love swing and I’m always going to swing but I also know that you can take a hip-hop groove and improvise with that just like you would with a swing pattern.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

Jazz Café Update

The refurbished Jazz Café opened to an exciting start for the New Year and quickly established itself as a vital live venue and a new daytime Café of real quality. From the start we welcomed the whole Jazz community and made space for promotions by Jazz North East , Schmazz and the Pink Lane Jazz Coop. Our commitment to live events continues with the launch of a larger more flexible venue upstairs at the Jazz Café on April 4th. We celebrate this step forward by hosting the Late Night Club of the Sage International Jazz Festival on the weekend of April 4th and 5th.
Upstairs at the Jazz Café is a small unique venue which will have a priority on live performance. It is licensed for Music, Theatre, Dance and Cinema and has a late bar licence. It is available for hire for private and public events and has the advantage of both technical and catering support. As a complete self contained venue this will become an important low budget creative space for the presentation of new shows in Newcastle.
So expect a broad range of original live events from traditional music to the more challenging performance art. The new Jazz Café is not just jazz, but it will take forward the lively spirit of creative improvisation.  
New web address www.jazzcafe-newcastle.co.uk  New phone 0191 2229882
Jazz Café 25-27 Pink Lane, Newcastle upon Tyne. 2 minutes from the Central Station.

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.
