Bebop Spoken There

Danny Gatton: "I was tired of playing in beer joints. I wanted to do something tangible like building cars. But once you do music it gets into your blood. You can get away from it for awhile but sooner or later it comes back to you." - (Down Beat April 1991).

Tal Farlow: "There were times when I would stop [playing guitar] and do sign painting." - (Downbeat December 5, 1963)

Brass Musicians Required for Video Shoot

I have a music video project being filmed on Saturday (May 21st) where I require brass players with a particular alternative look, aged 20s/30s!
As I am also getting particularly desperate here I am considering trying to hire instruments and have my friends pretend to play them. I would prefer real players, but I’ll take anything at the moment to make this happen.
So as a second question, are there any repair shops that may hire nonfunctioning instruments (I figure those are more likely to be hireable although they would still be well looked after) or even functioning instruments that could be hired!

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.
