GIJF - After thoughts

Wow! This year's GIJF has had such a buzz - the blog's passed the million views and reviews are coming in right left and centre. which is great. Not everybody liked everything but everyone liked something and the ambiance around the whole building was just something else.
Trying to keep up with it all, however, is difficult - a bit like being the editor of a local newspaper when World War 27 breaks out in a neighbouring village!
I'm doing my best - excuse me whilst I find my tin hat!
Hopefully all who were at Sage Gateshead will discover, via this blog, all the wonderful jazz that is going on in the region throughout the year, both at Sage Gateshead and other lesser known but no less appealing venues - there is even a gig in Hebburn coming up!

Good to meet you Lance and more of the Bebop bloggers, enjoyed the review of the SNJO Duke concert featuring Tommy Smith and honorary Scot and ex-RAM trumpeter Tom Walsh!

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.
