Bebop Spoken There

Hugh Masekela: “I advise every kid to check out their past because without a past you are in limbo.” (Songlines December 2017)

Leo Richardson: “I think your image is really important. You look at those old Blue Note recordings and you look at the liner note, the booklet and they’re in the studio and they’re wearing shirt and ties. They used to wear suits all the time.” – (Jazzwise December 2017/January 2018)

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.

Barry Manilow & All That Radio Jazz

(Preview by Russell)
First, a reminder of an unmissable television event this Sunday (17 August) – Battle of the Bands (BBC4, 7:00pm) featuring Clare Teal, Gregory Porter and two big bands slugging it out at this year’s Proms. Meanwhile on the wireless (the pictures are better) Bruce Turner is one of the requests on Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3, 5:00pm) and Jazz Line-Up, broadcast later than usual at 8:45pm (Radio 3), airs the second part of a concert recorded in Prague by John Scofield’s fantastic Uberjam Band.
Monday (18 August) tune into Paul Jones (Radio 2, 7:00pm) for an appreciation of the late Johnny Winter. At 11:00pm retune to Jazz on 3 (Radio 3) for some Edinburgh Festival highlights. Switch over to BBC 6 Music for a late night treat (2:00am) Alexis Korner: Rhythm and Blues Champion (the first of two programmes). Jamie Cullum meets Ben Jaffe, leader of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (Radio 2, Tuesday, 7:00pm) and at eleven o’clock Barry Manilow (Bazza on BSH!) looks at the work of Sammy Kahn in They Write the Songs. Finally, on Thursday the third part of Moira Stuart’s Strong and Sassy – Inspiring Women of Jazz (Radio 2, 10:00pm) focuses on Adelaide Hall.

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.
