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)

Cherry Tree Update

I wanted to let you know that we have decided to close the restaurant on a Monday night.  However we are moving the music night to the Wednesday.  We think that this will improve attendances.
The first three gigs are as follows:
15th October  The James Harrison Trio (James Harrison, Anth Ord, Tom Chapman) with Caroline Bagley - vocalist and tenor player.  She performed here a few weeks ago and received a great reception. She is a great talent.
22nd October   Graham Hardy with Paul Edis, Neil Harland and Rob Walker
29th October    An encore of the 15th Oct gig.
Three great concerts to kick off a new season for us.
Peter.
Cherry Tree Restaurant, 9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond. 0191 2399924. 7:45pm. No cover charge.

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.
