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).

St Cuthbert’s Durham Beat

(Russell reports/photo courtesy of Hugh C)
Bebop Spoken Here’s Man without Portfolio, Tony Eales, rounds up goings-on at Empty Shop, Ushaw College and a day trip to the Literary and Philosophical Society. Friday: an auspicious occasion, Ushaw College. Paul Edis, commissioned to write a suite for Ushaw College commemorating St Cuthbert and his links with the region, was rewarded with the ‘house full’ signs going up. (See previous post.)
Edis and the Ensemble gave a second performance today (Saturday) in Durham Cathedral at three o’clock.
Friday lunchtime: the Ruth Lambert Trio entertained the Lit & Phil audience. A good few turned out (additional seating on standby). Thursday: Framwellgate Bridge, Durham. The returning Rick Laughlin went to the shop, an Empty Shop. Pianist Laughlin, now residing ‘up north’ following a lengthy spell in London, played to a predominately student crowd at the flourishing Empty Shop enterprise. More from Our Man Eales in the coming weeks.

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.
