The return of Daniel John Martin!

(Preview by Russell)
Earlier this year Djangologist Mick Shoulder put together a short tour of northern venues working with Daniel John Martin. The County Durham-based Shoulder was taking a new venture on the road – Swing Manouche – and the opportunity to share a stage with Martin wasn’t one to be spurned. Swing Manouche goes from strength to strength and once more DJM will link up with Shoulder, Giles Strong, guitar, and Paul Susans, double bass.
 A run of three dates in the northeast will see Paris-based Martin entertain audiences in an archway, a café and a rural music centre. The violin virtuoso will renew acquaintance in a Gateshead speakeasy with Shoulder on Tuesday (4 October). Prohibition Bar is all things decadent; a converted railway arch space located at the Gateshead end of the Tyne Bridge exudes ‘Jazz Age’ chic. Its discreet entrance belies the 1920s’ delights hidden therein. At eight o’clock sharp guitarists Shoulder and Strong will set the rhythm. Martin will amaze those hearing him for the first time – ‘virtuoso’ scarcely does him justice. An ‘entertainer’, that’s DJM. A brilliant violinist, a singer too, and, perhaps, a whistled tune or two!
Mick Shoulder is known to many as being a fine bass player (Djangology, Paul Edis Trio and Sextet, small group, big band and more), Swing Manouche features Shoulder playing guitar alongside Giles Strong, with double bass-playing duties undertaken by another top class musician, Mr Paul Susans. Mitch Mitchell’s Prohibition Bar is likely to be busy, so, to be sure of your seat, arrive early. The Manouche caravan will wind its way into Bishop Auckland on Wednesday for a gig in the Town Hall’s comfortable café/bar. The Market Place venue should attract jazz fans from across County Durham and beyond. Tickets are available from 03000 269524. The following day DJM and Swing Manouche pitch-up in Hexham to play a set for Core Music based right in the heart of the market town at 14a/b Gilesgate.
(Also Blenkinsopp Castle nr. Haltwhistle on October 8 - see comments)
Three dates, be sure to get along to at least one of them. Daniel John Martin enjoys a high reputation in France, working regularly in prestigious Paris clubs. This short tour offers a rare chance to hear up close Manouche Hot Club and subsequent musical developments – a guaranteed (revelatory) night out!

Shame it clashes with the Jam Sesh at the JC - but then we don't know when he'll be back up in the North East! I'm going for sure .....

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 them all 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.

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.
