Lunchtime with Colin at the Black Bull (and elsewhere)

(Preview by Russell)
Colin Aitchison’s back in town. Bebop Spoken Here’s trumpet playing Hong Kong-based  Geordie ex-pat correspondent will be around for a week or so playing gigs here and there - see here, and as in recent years, Colin will be joined by fellow Hong Kong resident Franco Valussi. Colin is an authority on Louis Armstrong and his contemporaries, Franco is a virtuoso clarinetist, and on their gig at the Black Bull in Blaydon they will reunite with Cumbria-based reedsman Steve Andrews, Blaydon Jazz Club’s Roly Veitch playing guitar and, no doubt, singing one or two songs, and, on this session, the redoubtable bassist Alan Rudd.
It should be noted that this concert will be on a Saturday at one o’clock in the afternoon. The date? July 15. Colin’s schedule and the availability of the Black Bull’s in-demand music lounge dictates that July’s jazz concert will be something of a departure for Blaydon Jazz Club. Saturday afternoon could well appeal to many, we’ll see. Why not make a trip to the Black Bull? The pub is listed year in year out in Camra’s Good Beer Guide (Black Sheep and Deuchar’s are regulars on the bar), and there is ample parking just off Bridge Street. Alternatively, Blaydon Bus Station is but five minutes’ walk (frequent services to Gateshead, Newcastle and the Tyne Valley) and here’s a bonus if you’re travelling from Newcastle…why not take the train up the Tyne Valley line? Depart Newcastle 11:54, arrive Blaydon 12:06, returning 16:11, arriving Newcastle Central Station 16:27. Colin and the boys will be playing two sets, the first set starting at one o’clock. Admission on the door £5.00.

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.
