Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Michael James: "...if Ellis [Herb] has merits they are definitely not these [fantastic fire and drive]". - (Review of Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre (LP). Jazz Monthly May 1960).

Cookers Sage Gateshead!

(Preview by Russell)
Monday night there is only one place to be and that is Sage Gateshead. One of the great line-ups in jazz returns to play Sage Two following a triumphant appearance at the 2015 Gateshead International Jazz Festival. The Cookers – bop masters par excellence – made a huge impression last time around and Monday evening is sure to be one of those ‘I was there’ occasions.

The Cookers have an unbelievable pedigree; collectively band members have contributed to literally thousands of recording sessions (many of them with the biggest jazz names in history) and to see – and hear – these seven men on stage will be a privilege. The band is on a European tour and this Sage Gateshead date, one of four, offers a rare opportunity to hear the band on these shores. Band leader and trumpeter David Weiss has assembled the dream line-up of fellow trumpeter Eddie Henderson, Billy Harper, tenor, Craig Handy on alto, Danny Grissett, piano, Cecil McBee, double bass and master drummer Billy Hart.

Don’t miss this one. Monday 14th November. Contact Sage Gateshead’s ticket office now – telephone 0191 443 4661.

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.
