Eric Harland: “I love swing and I’m always going to swing but I also know that you can take a hip-hop groove and improvise with that just like you would with a swing pattern.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

  1. This is the lady who sang at the Caff jam session following Saturday night at the Sage Festival (who told FDT he plays like he's had his heart broken).

    Lord Paul (no less) stopped her as she passed to tell her she has a terrific voice and very much the soulful end of Jazz singers.

    On Friday I had to pick the missus up at Durham Train Station at 9.15 - great. And I've been planning to give this venue a go for a while and, had it not been for the Bad Plus at the Sage, this would have been the night.

  2. FYI Neil Harland on bass on this one

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.
