Bebop Spoken There

Danny Gatton: "I was tired of playing in beer joints. I wanted to do something tangible like building cars. But once you do music it gets into your blood. You can get away from it for awhile but sooner or later it comes back to you." - (Down Beat April 1991).

Tal Farlow: "There were times when I would stop [playing guitar] and do sign painting." - (Downbeat December 5, 1963)

A rare chance to experience the world class acoustics of Hall Two in an intimate in the round setting with Scandinavian/British jazz trio Phronesis.

‘Life to Everything’ is the title of Phronesis’ forthcoming album, recorded live at last year’s EFG London Jazz Festival, and they kick off a national tour this month to support it, including a date at Sage Gateshead on 27 May.
This will be a unique opportunity to experience this exciting, fast rising trio up close and personal, as we will be presenting this performance in the round. Get a unique perspective on Hall Two’s intimate surroundings with a 360º view of the band.
Bassist Jasper Høiby leads a stunning trio that represents everything that’s exciting about live jazz - The Telegraph called them “the most electrifying experience to be had in British jazz” and Jazzwise called them the most exciting and imaginative piano trio since EST.”
With so much time spent on the road and a reputation for spellbinding live performances, it was only natural for the band to record their fifth album in front of a live audience. In Høiby’s words “performing live has been the strength of this trio from the start. As the album title suggests - it’s where everything comes to life.”
Phronesis perform at Sage Gateshead on May 27, 2014. Tickets are £13.50 (concessions available) and can be booked either by calling 0191 443 4661, online at 
www.sagegateshead.com or in person from Sage Gateshead’s Ticket Office.

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.
