(Ed. Apologies for the delay in posting this item from Russell!)
A live edition of Jazz Line-Up comes from George Heriot’s School, Edinburgh at five o’clock today (Saturday August 19). Performers include the Dime Notes, Gwyneth Herbert and the duo of Andy Sheppard and guitarist John Parricelli. Also on Radio 3, Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz (midnight) listens to a selection of Charles Mingus’ recordings. On Thursday of next week (August 24) live from the Royal Albert Hall there is a celebration of Mingus’ life and music with Jules Buckley and the Metropole Orkest and featured soloists Shabaka Hutchings, saxophones, Christian Scott, trumpet, and vocalist Kandace Springs. The broadcast begins at 7:30pm and, twenty-four hours later over on BBC 4, you can listen again and watch the pictures on BBC Proms 2017.
If you want more of Andy Sheppard be sure to tune in to Monday evening’s Jazz Now programme on Radio 3 (11:00pm). Soweto Kinch presents a concert set from the Dean Street Pizza Express Jazz Club featuring Sheppard in his long-standing trio with Carla Bley and Steve Swallow.

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.
