Bebop Spoken There

Jackie McLean: “I can't understand British audiences. In Britain there doesn't seem to be any curiosity." (Melody Maker, April 1, 1961).

Charles Mingus: "It seems to me that if our records were not issued in Britain, the British cats would have to think for themselves" (Jazz News, July 26th 1961)

Jazz Café Jam Session Tuesday August 2.

(Review by Lance).
Earlier in the day Paul Gowland and Kath Jobes tied the knot and the celebrations spilled over into the Caff with a never ending flow of musicians on and off the stand. Too much happening to list chapter and verse save to say it was probably the best ever jam there since Harry Connick Jr and co. wandered in back in the dark and distant past!
So, working on the principle that a picture paints a thousand words, I've put it all together in album form.
Special photo album.
Lance.
PS: Oh yes, congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds.

Pete Gilligan (pno); Deon Krishnam (bs gtr); Russ Morgan (dms) + Dave Weisser, Alice Grace, Claire Kelly, Jude Murphy (vcls); Dave Weisser (cornet); Jack Courtney (tpt/flug); Paul Gowland (sop); Beth Roberts (alt); Evan Abell (bari); Joel Brown (pno); Bradley Johnston, Frances Tulip (gtrs); Abbie Finn, Matt Mackellar, Carl Gowland, Tom Atkinson (dms) - there may have been others...

  1. The jam session to end all jam sessions! Someone remarked that it should have been recorded.

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.
