In La La Land at the Tyneside

Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle’s independent film theatre, is to screen Damien Chazelle’s new film La La Land in January. Nominated for several Golden Globe awards and a real contender for an Oscar, Chazelle’s take on the Hollywood musical stars Ryan Gosling as Sebastian, an aspiring jazz pianist and Emma Stone as Mia, eyeing a career on the silver screen.
Director Damien Chazelle won acclaim for Whiplash, and La La Land (2016) promises to feature more jazz with the score by Justin ‘Whiplash’ Hurwitz. On Sunday 8th January at 5:40pm there will be a preview screening followed by a run at the Tyneside Cinema from Thursday 12th.

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.
