Bebop Spoken There

Danny Gatton: "I was tired of playing in beer joints. I wanted to do something tangible like building cars. But once you do music it gets into your blood. You can get away from it for awhile but sooner or later it comes back to you." - (Down Beat April 1991).

Tal Farlow: "There were times when I would stop [playing guitar] and do sign painting." - (Downbeat December 5, 1963)

Tune in to Claude the Great on In Tune

Next Friday’s (Sept. 18) edition of In Tune (Radio 3, 4:30pm) includes a live studio set from the Southern Cone Quintet. A London-based contemporary music ensemble, their broadcast debut will be of interest to those who came across the globetrotting, duffle-coated tenor saxophonist Claude Werner during his time on Tyneside.
Werner will be playing clarinet and flute alongside guitarist James Kitchman (formerly of Tynedale), Anisa Arslanagic (violin), Losif Purits (accordion) and Louis Thomas (double bass). Music with a hint of tango, hearing Claude the Great without his tenor will be odd to say the least! Southern Cone Quintet’s concert debut will be on Wednesday October 28 at the Red Hedgehog on Archway Road, Highgate, London.
Claude, the next time you’re in Toon, how about playing a gig? And don’t forget to bring your tenor!
Russell.

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.
