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)

Bill Evans: "A composer writes something, and an orchestra interprets it--he spends maybe six months writing 10 minutes of music, but a jazz musician spends 10 minutes of playing 10 minutes of music, and he performs it himself". - (Jazz Monthly July1960).

What a good night at the Globe!  The place was almost full before the music started, and it was packed by the time the first set was under way.  Lots of the crowd were friends of friends - no harm in that!  Nice to see the Jazz Bar busy with a Main plus Support act.
   Playing both quiet and heavy Blues covers reinvented by Adam's band. Every gig they play they aim to get a different guest musician. Keith was guesting on this gig - the harmonica adding a real touch of authenticity!   The Band are always on the lookout for different musicians - Adam made an open offer for musicians in the audience to join - their next gig is in Edinburgh :)
The support was Bethany Coyle and Steve (?) on James' slide guitar for a few numbers.  A nice mix of originals + covers, with good clean sound.  A short set well appreciated by the audience.

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.
