Bebop Spoken There

New release :Magnus Öström - Parachute.

Drummer Magnus Öström, a member of the world famous Esbjörn Svensson Trio (E.S.T.), is set to release his third solo album ‘Parachute’ on April 1, 2016.
The new album features the same band members as the two previous albums with guitarist Andreas Hourdakis, bassist and keyboardist Thobias Gabrielson and pianist Daniel Karlsson. Twenty years have passed since the hugely successful and critically acclaimed album ‘E.S.T. Plays Monk’ was released. ‘Parachute’ comprises eight original compositions by Magnus and also features Norwegian trumpeter Mathias Eick who guests on ‘The Shore Of Unsure.’
Although Magnus' solo career has been successful, the loss of Esbjörn Svensson in a tragic diving accident has been devastating. Music has helped him overcome some very dark times. 
Expressing his feelings Öström said,”During the years after Esbjörn’s death I have struggled to find my way back to life. Sometimes life has been ok, but at other times, it has been really dark. As for most of us, life has its ups and downs, but when I have been at my lowest when you don't see any way out, the music has always been there to save me, it has been my Parachute. This record is a celebration of music itself and to the energy it carries. It has helped not only me but also most of the people on this tormented globe that we travel on. As a temporary guest on this planet, I hope I will leave it a better place than when I arrived - I hope we all will do. That's what I'm striving for.”

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.
