Preview - This Saturday (Tonight - June 4) @ Hoochie: The Legendary Lonnie Liston Smith Band!

Tonight at Hoochie sees the return visit by one of the jazz/soul legends - Lonnie Listen Smith. Two years back he took the Hoochies and the Coochies by storm and I'm sure this time around it will still be the hottest ticket in town.
Lonnie Listen has a pedigree few living legends can match (read more) and I'm proud to say his previous visit was reviewed by yours truly on BSH.
Roll on Saturday!
Lance.

  1. Saw him at a Caister Weekender when we were both 30 years younger. Expansions is one of THE seminal Jazz Funk records and a monster track. Ditto 'a chance for peace/ give peace a chance' and a couple of others I can't remember the title of - Sunburst?
    Also played with Roland Kirk, Pharaoh Saunders and Miles so some pre-funk history there too.

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.
