Jazz Café Hot Club Virtuosi

(Preview by Russell/Photo courtesy of Mike Tilley)
Newcastle’s Jazz Café is anticipating another sell-out evening with the return of Daniel John Martin and Swing Manouche. Tomorrow (Tuesday 14th) Paris-based violinist Martin renews acquaintance with Mick Shoulder’s brilliant gypsy jazz swing-time outfit. Earlier this month Emma Fisk’s Hot Club du Nord played to a standing room only audience demanding encores beyond half past eleven in the evening. Fisk is a virtuoso, so too Daniel John Martin. If you’re yet to hear him live this is your chance to catch up with a truly charismatic performer. Expect Grappelli and more from DJM. Mick Shoulder will be swapping his usual string bass duties for a six string workout with fellow virtuoso, Mr Giles Strong. The man at the back, the redoubtable Paul Susans will be assuming bass duties.
To be sure of a seat, book your ticket over the phone at a bargain advance price of £5.00., or pay £7.00. on the door (if not sold out). Telephone: 0191 222 9882. Vive le jazz hot!

Submissions for review

Whilst we appreciate the many emails, texts, messages and other communications we receive requesting album/gig reviews on BSH, regrettably, we are unable to reply to them all other than those we are able to answer with a positive response.
Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
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.
