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)

Jazz Clubs World Wide

Peter Maguire's brilliant and well intentioned site is one worth supporting - particularly if you travel a lot. However, I found the north east section to be hopelessly out of date. Some venues have closed, some of the buildings have been demolished, in short it needs updating.
Only you can do it!
If your pub/club/theatre/whatever wants to pull in, not only the locals, but the tourist/passing trade then you need to update your entry and, if no longer active, please inform Peter.
After all, if you went to Beach Road in South Shields looking for The Cellar Club you may be a tad disappointed although perhaps not as much as if you'd traveled to Azerbaijan and found the Caspian Club closed (hopefully it isn't).
So really, whilst this is in particular an appeal to north-easteners to update their info, it's in fact a message to the world.

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.
