Bebop Spoken There

John Tynan: "Go ahead, call me reactionary. I happen to object to the musical nonsense being peddled in the name of jazz by John Coltrane and his acolyte Eric Dolphy." - (Downbeat November 22, 1961).

-----

McCoy Tyner: "If anyone want to know how the three of us - Elvin, Jimmy and me - felt about John [Coltrane], listen to the music and you can hear the love and respect we had for each other. The music can really speak more than any of us." - (Melody Maker, August 19, 1967).

Jazz makes its debut at The Bessie Boyd

David Gosling sent me the following info re a new venue Way Out West:
The Bessie Boyd, a new venue in Carlisle, is to launch its first jazz performance on Thursday April 16th.
Situated beneath the St Georges Church, 35 Warwick Road and Earl Street,
The Bessie Boyd is rapidly establishing itself as a great venue for live music and its first jazz show will feature the north east piano and trumpet duo of Paul Edis & Graham Hardy.
Jazz on a Thursday night is nothing new for Carlisle, as the Carlisle Jazz Club is held at Carlisle’s Rugby Club every Thursday night, but to have two jazz gigs taking place at the same time is a rarity.
Organiser David Gosling, who has a history of staging jazz performances in unusual places, Andy Sheppard and Pee Wee Ellis in Lanercost Priory and Chicago’s Greg Spero Quartet at the Upfront Theatre for example, feels that the unique atmosphere of The Bessie Boyd is perfect for live music and in particular jazz.
Having two jazz performances in the city does not concern him either as, though far from ideal, the music is likely to appeal two different audiences with the jazz club gig featuring mostly traditional and New Orleans jazz whilst Edis and Hardy’s will serve up a much more contemporary sound.
Paul Edis, described as a 'brilliant young pianist' (Alyn Shipton, The Guardian) teams up with Graham Hardy a talented and versatile Trumpeter, composer and arranger to perform music by Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis alongside their own original material.
Paul Edis & Graham Hardy
Thursday April 16th, 8.00pm The Bessie Boyd, 35 Warwick Road, Carlisle
£5.00 on the door

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.
