Tall Ships - Day One.









Last night I went down to catch the Nick Pride Trio who came over very well - if not all jazz
Also along by the Lifeboat Station I came across some "fringe" activity. An organisation called "Tall Ship" (singular) has two sheds in which they are building a tall ship. Not mentioned in the main programme they are putting on various bands over the four days. I heard a couple of tunes from a band called Dennis. A full on sound with obvious links to the Durham Brass Band tradition

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.
