Bebop Spoken There

Curtis Stigers: “I’m a jazz singer. I’m not a saxophonist. When I stand in front of a band like the Danish Radio Big Band or Ronnie Scott’s, I usually tend to leave the instrument on the stand.” – (The Northern Echo 20 July 2017)

Election Time - Vote Now!

Following hot on the heels of the results of the 2014 British Jazz Awards, the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Awards are with us once more.
BSH regulars will, I'm sure, give us their support in the Jazz Media Category (Best Blog etc.) But this is also an opportunity to draw attention to some north east talent worthy of greater recognition by the rest of the country.
The categories (related to 2014 albums/performances) are:
Jazz Album:
Jazz Vocalist:
Jazz Instrumentalist:
Jazz Venue/Festival/Club/Promoter:
Jazz Media:
Jazz Education:
There have been a lot of CDs released locally and several great festivals/jazz parties, not to mention singers and players both established and up and coming. No need for me to make suggestions - you know who they are. However, just because someone lives in the next street to you, that doesn't mean you have to vote for that person unless, of course, you feel he/she has ability comparable with the country's best.
To vote for your favourites and get more info follow this link. Voting closes at noon on December 12.
Lance.

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.
