Vasilis! 21 days and counting ’til the return of the great swinging tenor player!

Swinging tenor saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos is soon to make his annual autumn visit to the north east. An enduring friendship with pianist Paul Edis sees Vasilis travel north to play a few dates around the region. They’ll meet up at the Traveller’s Rest, Cockerton in Darlington on Friday 21 October to play a quartet gig with Andy Champion, bass and Russ Morgan, drums, at the long-running Opus 4 Jazz Club. A couple of duo dates over the border – at Zeffirellis in Ambleside, Cumbria – then it’s on to the Black Bull in Blaydon on Sunday 23 where they’ll once again work as a quartet with Champion and Morgan at Blaydon Jazz Club.
Last year’s gigs in Darlington and Blaydon where standing-room-only affairs. To be sure of getting in, never mind getting a seat, the best advice is, arrive early. If you leave it any later than 7:30pm you may not get in! Book the babysitter now!

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.
