Bebop Spoken There

Hugh Masekela: “I advise every kid to check out their past because without a past you are in limbo.” (Songlines December 2017)

Leo Richardson: “I think your image is really important. You look at those old Blue Note recordings and you look at the liner note, the booklet and they’re in the studio and they’re wearing shirt and ties. They used to wear suits all the time.” – (Jazzwise December 2017/January 2018)

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.

Jazz Quest Radio "What Laurie [Pepper] Likes"

Listen to recordings of Art Pepper along with studio guests, Art's widow, Laurie Pepper and Belgium archivist Rocco Bertels. It's compelling listening. Both the talking and the music is great. Art's my all-time favourite alto player - maybe even my favourite jazz musician ever and it's a thrill for me to hear Laurie talking about the background to many of Art's recordings. 
Don't let the opening station identification put you off - the action begins with the classic Art Pepper Quartet recording from the 1950s of Bésame Mucho. As it happens, this was the track that first turned me on to Art Pepper (thank you, Charlie Carmichael).
Live extended versions of What Laurie Likes; Cherokee; Historia de un Amor and a studio version of I'm Getting Sentimental Over You follow. Sentimental also has Bob Cooper, Bill Watrous, Pete Jolly, Monty Budwig and Shelly Manne alongside Art making this a truly all-star West Coast line-up.

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.
