Bebop Spoken There

Piers Paul Read: "Bruce Reynolds and Biggs shared an interest in Sex, Jazz and Hemingway." - (The Train Robbers by Piers Paul Read, Coronet Books 1979.)

George Shearing: "Speaking about Johann Sebastian Bach I think he'd be a real jazzer if he were alive today. I mean any man who has two wives, twenty kids, gets kicked out of the church for being too harmonically radical and drinks beer can't be all wrong can he?" - (Crescendo March 1984.)

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to all of them other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

Musicians Unlimited @ Jackson's Wharf, Hartlepool. August 11.

John Nesbitt, one of our many Teesside operatives, sent us this YouTube clip of Musicians Unlimited playing a charity gig at Jackson's Wharf, Hartlepool.
John tells it thus...
Musicians Unlimited didn't fall off the back of a wagon last Thursday (August 11) night at Maestro Mick Donnelly's, fundraiser but their fantastic music just poured out. Delightful to the ear. The event was to raise funds for the RNLI & Support your bowel charities. The massive audience had had a good soaking from the rain, that wasn't forecast, but almost all stayed the distance of about six hours and all went home humming and singing. Tough Hartlepool stock.
The sound system was kindly supplied and installed by Tony and Nolene White. Contact; tonywhiteintheuk@live.co.uk

The trailer in which the band was housed was kindly donated for the occasion by Ian Sykes by Ian Sykes of View Logistics. URL; www.viewlogistics.co.uk.

Jacksons Wharf is at The Highlight, Hartlepool, Cleveland, TS24 0XN 01429 862963 jacksonswharf.hartlepool@marstons.co.uk They serve great food and a good selection of well-kept Wines, Beers, Ciders & Lagers at affordable prices. Right next to The Trincomalee, iron clad sailing battleship. Well worth a visit.
Musicians Unlimited, whose home base is the Park Inn, 82 Park Rd., Hartlepool,TS26 9HU. normally play Sunday lunchtimes there although, at present theory are taking a Summer break. However, all is not lost for this Sunday (August 21) there is a special event. Let Mick Donnelly tell it...

MDA Music Scholarship Fund proudly presents an afternoon of 'JAZZ MUSIC' at The Park Inn, Hartlepool. (12noon - 3pm.)
This event is to help raise funds towards providing scholarships for young musicians in the Hartlepool area. 
It will feature some of the North East finest musicians, Mick Donnelly, James Harrison, Ton Chapman, Mick Shoulder and many guests.
It is a FREE concert, however, donations are very welcome.

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.
