Unfortunately I can't make it this year, but it's a great little festival: easy to get to, easy to find, easy to get around, easy to park - a big deal these days - and, once again, some great bands.
Last year saw a number of North East musicians and quite a lot of Gypsy Jazz, so the two come together this time in Emma Fisks HCDN, featuring several incredible musicians, known to anyone who follows North East Jazz. Also Zoe and Andy ditto.
In fact, I'm going to try to get down for something.

Latest news is that the Zoe Gilby concert at Monkmans on Wednesday August 16 is now SOLD OUT!

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.
