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)

Jason Isaacs - Singles, Spandau Ballet & travelling South...

After 10 years I finally did it – I finally found Jason a proper, bona fide management team – and boy have they been busy! Please welcome Karl, Steven and Chris from Melbury House Music, Giles from On The Rocks Music along with our new, fabulous and very well connected ‘pluggers’ Dylan and Neil.
With the fantastic backing of these industry professionals, we are releasing our first ever self-produced single, which is an upbeat cover of ‘Too Marvellous For Words’. As it will also be available as a physical CD and limited edition vinyl, you get Mr Bojangles as a bonus B side.
With a provisional release date of May 11, both are now available for pre-order at iTunes and Amazon at a set price of just £1.29 (click here). And once again we need your support. If everyone we know gets 4 others to buy it we are assured of chart movement. Let’s put the sophisticated face of Newcastle in the spotlight for a change.
In addition to the single, we have just completed the first leg of a UK tour – with upcoming shows in London, York and Liverpool to name but a few. A full list of these can be found here. Steve Norman, sax playing legend with Spandau Ballet, has very kindly agreed to guest with Jason in both our Newcastle City Hall (Sat May 10, 2014) and Beck Theatre Hayes / London( Friday July 11, 2014) shows, so that’s a real ‘battle of the saxes’ to look forward to! Tickets for these and all our shows can be purchased through our website (here) or by calling 07745 046 805.
For those of you living in and around Newcastle, there is also a selection of dinner dances to enjoy at some of our most beautiful venues. These include Horton Grange (May 9th) and Jesmond Dene House (July 24) but please check out others here.
With an album and more high profile gigs & collaborations in the pipeline, it looks like 2014 is going to be a great year for us and all our Jason Isaacs fans. We massively appreciate your ongoing support and undying enthusiasm.
We will be keeping you up to date with all the latest news and events, so if you would rather not receive these regular emails please unsubscribe below.
All that remains is to say have a fabulous Spring and we all look forward to welcoming you to a Jason Isaacs happening soon.
Sharon and team.

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.
