Birtley at 21 - Let's 'Raes' a Glass

This Thursday (October 6) St Joseph’s, in Birtley, just off the main drag, will be having a party. Twenty-one candles on a Dixieland/New Orleans’ cake will burn brightly as Mac and Dave Rae, long-time supporters of Birtley Jazz Club, take to the stage with their New Orleans Quartet, together with special guest Don Fairley, to celebrate Birtley Jazz Club’s coming of age.
Through good times and bad times, Birtley Jazz Club’s resolute organisers present a first Thursday in the month jazz gig. Fads, fashions, a lack of public funding, nothing deters a club about to mark twenty-one years of jazz, jazz, jazz! Two sets, the first starting at half past eight, a mere three pounds admission, a raffle, a pint of Guinness, support your local jazz club. Many Happy Returns to Birtley Jazz Club!
Russell.

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.
