Bebop Spoken There

Alan Broadbent: “I really enjoy working with some singers. It depends. Again, there has to be a give and take between the two of us. Otherwise, it’s just a job and I’m too old for that now.”(Jazz Times February 2015).

Alan Broadbent: “As soon as I heard where Georgia [Mancio] was coming from, and the tradition in terms of songwriting and her appreciation of standards, it was basically the same as mine.” – (Jazzwise April 2017)

September dates for Clare Teal

Clare Teal (www.clareteal.co.uk) has announced the following dates in North Yorkshire:
Duo show with piano - Friday 11th September @ Holy Trinity Church, Ripon, HG4 2EY
Quartet show, trio on piano, bass and drums – Saturday 12th September @ Fallfest, Glusburn, North Yorkshire, BD20 8PJ 
7:30pm - Headlining Fallfest 2015
As much as she thoroughly enjoys fronting her Big Band or her Hollywood Orchestra, or presenting her weekly show on BBC Radio 2, award winning jazz singer Clare Teal still revels in performing in more intimate venues. Getting close to an audience is a thrilling experience for Clare. She engages in a wonderful musical (and often spoken) conversation with the audience and they in turn feel that they really have witnessed something personal and very special.
The music played in these shows is always evolving, from The Great American and British Songbooks to the music made popular by her heroes, Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day and Peggy Lee to more contemporary covers and original material Clare loves to create a melting pot of styles and genres, but all sung in her inimitable style.
Beautiful melodies, fabulous arrangements and all interspersed with Clare’s warm and witty story telling.
The duo shows are sung and performed by Clare with piano accompaniment only, and at her quartet shows Clare will be backed by her excellent trio on piano, bass and drums.
You will experience a dazzling evening of exquisite melodies sung by one of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song.
(Press release).

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.
