Bebop Spoken There

Alan Broadbent: “I really enjoy working with some singers. It depends. Again, there has to be a give and take between the two of us. Otherwise, it’s just a job and I’m too old for that now.”(Jazz Times February 2015).

Alan Broadbent: “As soon as I heard where Georgia [Mancio] was coming from, and the tradition in terms of songwriting and her appreciation of standards, it was basically the same as mine.” – (Jazzwise April 2017)

Tommy Smith to host Glasgow jazz summer school

(Press release)
Saxophonist Tommy Smith is hosting a 5-day summer school for young jazz musicians at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow from July 24 to 28.
The school, which coincides with Glasgow Jazz Festival, aims to benefit musicians between the ages of 12 and 17 who are beginning to develop their skills in spontaneous composition and jazz improvisation and wish to take their playing to the next level.
A hugely experienced musician who has his own youth orchestra as well as directing the internationally acclaimed Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and touring the world with Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen’s ECM recording trio, Smith heads the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s jazz course and will lead a team of  internationally renowned educators, recording artists and performers in delivering the summer school programme.
“It’s an intensive programme designed to inspire young musicians,” says Smith. “The focus will be on group performance, while offering specific instrumental guidance on key elements of improvisation and performance, and we welcome all instruments.”
Participants will receive master classes on their chosen instruments, jazz theory classes, and recording experience and as well as the all-star tutors giving concerts, at the end of the week all the participants will take part in a public group performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The school runs from 10am to 5pm each day and the fee is £240. For further information, log onto https://www.rcs.ac.uk/shortcourses/jazz/

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.
