Bebop Spoken There

Hugh Masekela: “I advise every kid to check out their past because without a past you are in limbo.” (Songlines December 2017)

Leo Richardson: “I think your image is really important. You look at those old Blue Note recordings and you look at the liner note, the booklet and they’re in the studio and they’re wearing shirt and ties. They used to wear suits all the time.” – (Jazzwise December 2017/January 2018)

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

Final reminder : Alice Grace Quintet at the Jazz Cafe 9pm Fri 18th September

9pm Friday 18th September - Alice Grace Quintet £6.00 (£5.00 in advance) from the Café. Wed & Thurs 11am to 6pm / Fri 11am to 11pm / Or phone & reserve on 0191 222 9882 / Collect & pay by 8.30pm to save £1.00 
Vocalist Alice has only recently moved to the region and played a handful of gigs with duos and trios, one of which led Bebop Spoken Here's Lance Liddell (sic!) to look forward to this gig and write "Even if Diana Krall is on at The Arena.......it will be a heads or tails situation."
Accompanying Alice is as strong a quartet as will be playing anywhere in the North East on the 18th : Peter Gilligan piano, Paul Gowland saxophones, Paul Grainger double bass and Russ Morgan drums.

Coming up on Friday week 25th September: Soundbone Plays Led Zep
Free-ranging prog-jazz versions of Led Zep classics. Book now.

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.
