Bebop Spoken There

Andrew Hadro: "It seems to me that everybody just puts out an album, they go through the motions, spend the money and they just sort of throw it out there into the sea of CDs and hope something comes back" - (DownBeat June 2018).

Jonnathan Blake (Blindfold Test): “Maybe it's someone from New Orleans who has lived in New York for a minute.” (DownBeat June 2018).

A product of Jazz North East's growing connections with the European jazz scene, this all-day event, unique to Newcastle, is a showcase for Dutch jazz, with representatives from both the acclaimed older generation and the new generation that is building its own reputation throughout Europe. Nine musicians are flying in specially from Amsterdam, to be joined by two representatives of the UK scene in bass player Olie Brice and Tyneside's very own Faye MacCalman on reeds. 
At the time that Jazz North East had flyers and posters printed for the event, the detailed programme had still to be finalised. But it's now pretty well nailed down, and will feature a mix of established groups and new combinations that the musicians themselves have suggested as creatively fruitful. In order to pack in as much as possible, each of the sessions (morning and afternoon) will contain three sets, each of which will be further sub-divided into a short performance from one of the new combinations, and a longer outing for one of the established groups - so your ticket money buys you no fewer than twelve bands!
Because the musicians will be discussing this right up to the day before (when they will be rehearsing at the Jazz Café), there could still be some minor tweaking to the programme, but the latest information I have is as follows:

AFTERNOON SESSION : 2.00 - 5.30pm
Set One:  Olie Brice / John Dikeman / Onno Govaert + Ab Baars Trio (Ab Baars / Wilbert de Joode / Martin van Duynhoven)
Set Two: Reinier Baas solo +  Feecho (Kaya Draksler / Onno Govaert)
Set Three : Olie Brice / Wilbert de Joode / Faye MacCalman + Baars-Henneman Duo

EVENING SESSION : 7.00 - 10.30pm
Set One:  Ab Baars / Olie Brice / Jasper Stadhouders / Martin van Duynhoven + Kaja Draksler solo
Set Two:  Reinier Baas / Ig Henneman / Faye MacCalman + Cactus Truck (John Dikeman / Onno Govaert / Jasper Stadhouders)
Set Three : Ig Henneman - Kaja Draksler Duo + Jasper Stadhouders / Wilbert de Joode / Onno Goveart


With the exception of the Gateshead International Jazz Festival, I don't normally send out detailed previews of gigs until the week before they're happening. But this is such a major event - a one-off for Tyneside - that you should really think about getting your tickets now . . .

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.
