Blame it on their youth

Award winning pianist Mark Pringle and unique young trumpeter Tom Syson explore the art of the duo from the golden early years of jazz, (beginning with an investigation of Chet Baker's music) to the contemporary avant garde. 
Blurb re forthcoming gig at Jazz Café.
Love it! 
I might bring my King Oliver/Jelly Roll; Louis/Earl Hines 78s along to have them  [the discs] pronounced as fakes. Oh, and didn't Hawkins do some duos? Then Emma might confirm that Joe and Eddie also did some. Hey, I remember Ruby Braff with Ellis Larkins and, to be honest, I can't think of a Chet Baker duo set.
I guess we all have different views on 'Golden Eras'.

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.
