Bebop Spoken There

Miles Kington: "If the intake of alcohol fails to improve a jazz player's performance, why do jazz listeners think it improves their appreciation?" - (Jazz Express October 1982).

Barbara Jay: "My first gig was at the Astoria, Charing Cross Rd. It seemed like a den of iniquity to me. All the Soho girls were there and the gigolos with their old women paying them to dance..." - (Jazz UK May 2008.)

Global Jazz

It’s Ours!
At noon yesterday Pink Lane Jazz Co-op Ltd became the owners of The Globe, Railway Street, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 7AD.
We believe that The Globe is the first music venue in the UK to be owned by a co-operative, certainly the first to be owned by a jazz co-op.  We now have over 200 members.
Yesterday was also International Jazz Day.  How appropriate!
We’d like to say a big thank you to all the people who have helped to make this possible including those who have invested or lent us money, those who have given us their time and expertise free of charge, the other jazz and arts organisations that have supported us and the many people who have promoted us through social media and mainstream media.
There’s a bit of refurbishment to do before The Globe will be up and running on both floors.  We will keep you informed of progress.
Thank you all
Minnie Fraser and Dave Parker
Co-chairs of Pink Lane Jazz Co-op Ltd

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.
