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)

Bill Evans: "A composer writes something, and an orchestra interprets it--he spends maybe six months writing 10 minutes of music, but a jazz musician spends 10 minutes of playing 10 minutes of music, and he performs it himself". - (Jazz Monthly July1960).

International Jazz Artists play The Jazz Cafe Friday April 15: Free Admission

The Jazz Café team are delighted to announce a free admission duo performance downstairs in The Café on the Friday of the Sage International Jazz Festival weekend  in association with Gateshead International Jazz Festival and Jazz North East.
Friday, April 15, at 9.00pm – Michel Reis (piano) and Stefan Karl Schmid (tenor & soprano saxophones and clarinet) – Admission Free.
Michel Reis and Stefan Karl Schmid are one-half of the Michel Reis Quartet which is on Tyneside at this time to appear in concert in a double bill with John Law’s New Congregation in the Gateshead International Jazz Festival at Sage Gateshead at 2.30pm on Saturday, April 16.
Luxembourg – born Michel Reis, having completed his music studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston and at the New England Conservatory, bases himself partly in New York and partly in his home country. In Europe, he leads three bands. In the Quartet which comes to Gateshead he is joined by three outstanding players from Germany and of this group he writes that he “always strives to build atmospheres which go deep into lyrical dimensions, yet having still the full rhythmic energy of a modern jazz group, where composition and spontaneous improvisation take the listeners on an emotional journey.” We might expect something of this approach to inform his duo performance with Stefan Karl Schmid.
Michel Reis has made one previous appearance in Newcastle with his Luxembourg trio, Reis/ Demuth/Wiltgen, an unforgettable one in this writer’s opinion. His third group, The Paris Quartet, is made up entirely of stellar French jazz musicians and focuses on the music of Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy arranged for jazz quartet by Reis.
Michel Reis is a Steinway Artist. “Michel Reis is a very exceptional pianist and composer.” Joe Lovano.

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.
