Bebop Spoken There

Peter Vacher: “The Hopbine [public house] is a Tesco Express now, having been reinvented successively as Desi Dons, Bootsy Brogans, the Dog and Duck and, before that, the Chequered Flag.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

Kyle Eastwood: “Naturally I listened to pop music when I was a kid – I’d spend two hours a day hearing it on the school bus! – but the very first music I heard in the house and the first concerts I went to were jazz.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

COMPETITION TIME!!!

Win a Northern Monkey Brass Band High On Life CD and Free Entry for 2 to the launch gig on 6th July at Hoochie Coochie in Newcastle!
We're often approached after gigs by people saying "You should do a version of 'this' tune" or "I'd love to hear you play 'that' tune" etc, so to mark the band's first CD launch, we want you to nominate a piece of music you'd like to hear us play.
The suggestion we like the most will be played at the gig, the person that nominates it will win our CD, 'High On Life', plus free entry for them and a guest to the gig itself.
A few rules/guidelines to keep it clear and simple;
1. You must 'like' the band on Facebook to enter.
2. Post your nomination on our Facebook page.
3. ONE nomination per person.
4. If more than one person suggests the same tune, the first person that posted it wins.
5. The winner will be decided by us, our decision will be final.
6. Competition will close midnight 31st May.
7. We do have several cover tunes that are in various stages of development for us to play in the future, should you choose one of these titles, we'll let you know and you can have another go.
We're looking forward to your suggestions. Good luck from all of us at Northern Monkey Towers.

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.
