Bebop Spoken There

Peter Vacher: “The Hopbine [public house] is a Tesco Express now, having been reinvented successively as Desi Dons, Bootsy Brogans, the Dog and Duck and, before that, the Chequered Flag.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

Kyle Eastwood: “Naturally I listened to pop music when I was a kid – I’d spend two hours a day hearing it on the school bus! – but the very first music I heard in the house and the first concerts I went to were jazz.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

NCRO Tickets Now on Sale

Tickets are now on sale for the annual concert by the New Century Ragtime Orchestra at Gateshead's Caedmon Hall on  Friday 3 February 2017. Ragtime and stride piano maestro Keith Nichols, drummer Nick Ward and the lovely Caroline on vocals are the featured special guests for what is always an enjoyable, fun-filled evening of ragtime, hot dance music and early swing, all anarchically presided over by reedman Steve Andrews!
Because of the band's popularity and strong following, tickets (£15) are best reserved in advance (details below) and can be paid for on the night.  Advanced sales permitting, tickets will also be available on the door, which opens at 7:00 pm and the show starts at 7.30 pm.  Tickets can also be obtained through the venue's box office on 0191 433 6965 or by clicking this link.

For those who haven't been before, the Caedmon Hall is situated within the Central Library on Prince Consort Road, Gateshead NE8 4LN.  It's an intimate venue with excellent acoustics, bar facilities, disabled access and free parking.
Recommended.

"This twelve-piece orchestra plays music from the dawn of Ragtime in the 1890’s through to the early Swing Era of the 1930’s. Lovingly recreated from the original sheet music and painstakingly scored for full ensemble, we perform not only ragtime composers such as Scott Joplin but also the classic jazz and hot dance music of the 1920’s, and the early swing of Duke Ellington."
For advance ticket/reservation contacts Dave Kerr on 0191 281 4011  or  at:

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.
