Empty Shop Full House – Sunday, October 23.

(Report by Tony Eales/Russell)
Tony Eales reports that a student-led jam session at Durham’s Empty Shop played to a full house. Core members of Durham University Big Band (DUBB) formed the rhythm section and a number of sitters-in entertained a capacity audience, largely comprised of fellow students. The bar turned over, everyone had a good time, the session will run on Sundays, term time (free admission, 8:00pm start), until further notice. Bebop Spoken Here will post any changes to the proposed weekly schedule – stay tuned!

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.
