Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Michael James: "...if Ellis [Herb] has merits they are definitely not these [fantastic fire and drive]". - (Review of Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre (LP). Jazz Monthly May 1960).

Radio Russell: The Sound of Cinema, Somerset Blues and Car Horns

Film of the moment Whiplash is included in Matthew Sweet’s selection of ‘jazz-inspired film music’ in Sound of Cinema (Radio 3, Saturday 17 January, 4:00pm). Justin Hurwitz, composer, is in good company with Alex North’s score for A Streetcar Named Desire on the playlist.
Shabaka Hutchings plays some of his favourite South African jazz tracks and his band the Blue Notes can be heard in concert at last year’s London Jazz Festival on Jazz Line-Up at 9:00pm (Radio 3). Earlier, on Radio 4 (2:30pm) tune in to hear the ‘blues-infused musical fairy tale’ Drama: Kneehigh’s The Wild Bride. Carl Grose’s play adapted for radio by the playwright and Emma Rice features music written by Stu Barker. Jez Nelson’s Jazz on 3 (Monday, Radio 3, 11:00pm) could be a good listen with a set recorded at London’s Café Oto featuring John Dikeman, Hamid Drake and William Parker. A similarly good listen could be Somerset Blues: The Story of Acker Bilk (Tuesday, Radio 2, 10:00pm). Actor and singer Clarke Peters presents a one hour tribute to the man from the West Country. Radio 3’s In Tune invariably has some jazz content from week to week and Thursday’s edition, 4:30pm, finds Empirical performing live in the studio. Gershwin’s Horns promises to be an oddity. BBC Radio 4 Extra, Friday (8:30pm) looks at An American in Paris. Gershwin and car horns…beep, beep!

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.
