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.

World Premiere of St. Cuthbert's Suite in March

St. Cuthbert, widely regarded as the Patron Saint of Northern England, died on March 20, 687AD - 1329 years ago - so the forthcoming world premiere of the St. Cuthbert's Suite is long overdue
This specially commissioned composition, composed by Durham-born musician Paul Edis, is a musical account of the life of StCuthbert. Drawing upon influences from jazz, folk and classical music it will be performed by some of the finest musicians in the North East on Friday, March 18 at Ushaw College, and then at Durham Cathedral on Saturday, March 19.
The Ushaw Ensemble consists of Graham Hardy (Trumpet/Flugel), Graeme Wilson (saxes/bass clarinet/flute), Emma Fisk (Violin), Alice Burn (Northumbrian Pipes), Paul Edis (Piano/MD), Rob Walker (drums/perc) and Paul Susans (double bass)
Cuthbert was a shepherd from Melrose - he saw a vision of the soul being carried up to heaven by Angels - he joined a monastery - as an evangelist he was described as 'indefatigable' and 'the wonder worker of Britain - he lived in solitude as a hermit - his body had to be moved several times after his death (including 7 years on the road) fleeing the Vikings, until eventually settling in Dunholme (Durham) where the Cathedral now stands (apparently, it would appear from the photo, calling in at the Gala Theatre) .

Re Cuthbert: As you say, Lance, calling in at the Gala. Due to the nocturnal habits of some of his neighbours in Millenium Square he may be forced to take refuge in the grounds of the Cathedral! (http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/plans-move-holy-statue-st-9602073)

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.
