Bebop Spoken There

Howard Riley: “When I started out playing jazz back in the late 50s, early 60s, if you wanted a gig you had to learn some standards.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

Eric Harland: “I love swing and I’m always going to swing but I also know that you can take a hip-hop groove and improvise with that just like you would with a swing pattern.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

No Coochie @ Hoochie tonight.

I had the option of Ryan Quigley at Sage Gateshead or The Collective at Hoochie Coochie. I opted for the latter - wrong call!
No Collective tonight and too late for Sage.
The barman at HC wasn't too sure thought maybe it was because of a bereavement so I couldn't argue but hey - you guys in the band - I do my best to promote the gig couldn't you have let me know? I met a couple of fans coming in as I was going out and they weren't pleased... neither was I!
I had a punt on the "Rapid Transit" Metro - it was on time!
Win some, Lose some.
Lance.
PS: Kate Daniels at Lit & Phil tomorrow night...

  3. Hi Lance, Martyn here, bassist in The Collective.

    The Collective has gone on a hiatus for an indeterminate length of time due to other commitments by band members, for example; I'm busy devoting all of my efforts into a full time PGCE currently.

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.
