Fumi Okiji’s Old Time Jazz Band Northern Tour Dates

Displaying image004.jpgFumi Okiji’s Old Time Jazz Band is a joyous 
celebration of the great tradition of jazz song. 
The music is essentially lovingly crafted interpretations of  from Jazz’s inception, through the interwar years. 
The band takes in the clues, New Orleans, black vaudeville,  Louis, Ella and Billie. While tackling the material with upmost reverence it does with both feet firmly in the 21st Century. Featuring Idris Rahman on clarinet and sax, Ben Davis on cello, Stuart Hall on guitar and Roy Dodds on drumsThe Old Time Jazz Band is simply a great group of musicians playing timeless, great songs.
Together they make a nostalgic sound that crackles with 21st century flair.’(Robert Shore, Metro).‘It is unapologetically old time jazz and at the heart is Fumi’s rich, sonorous, contralto accompanied by a stellar band of musicians.’ (Simisola Balogun)

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.
