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).

Strictly Good Weather @ the Tyne Bar

Sometime BSH correspondent Kath J has ordered good weather from eBay for Saturday afternoon (August 15) in the Ouseburn area of Newcastle. The online purchase, I'm informed, ensures that the Maling Street wind tunnel will be becalmed. Bring a brolly to shelter from a scorching sun, marvel at the jiving street dancers, enjoy the barbecue, drink a gallon of beer and listen to the fantastic Strictly Smokin’ Big Band. Get there in good time (four o’clock should do), it’s free admission and the Quay Link bus service Q3 stops nearby – don’t jump aboard Q1 or Q2 unless you’re incorporating the gig as part of a walking holiday.

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.
