Berlin Jazz Quartet on tour!

(Preview by Russell)
The Master Musicians International network has a long history of promoting concerts in numerous venues throughout the north east of England. Concert series primarily focus upon established and emerging classical artists. Autumn 2017 marks something of a departure with a four date tour by a German jazz quartet. Ulrich Hubner, tenor saxophone, Max Arsava, piano, Leo Helgert, bass, and Jonas Sorgenfrei, drums, call themselves the Berlin Jazz Quartet.
Four concerts in four days – one in Durham, one in Newcastle, and two in North Shields – give the gig-goer every opportunity to hear a modern jazz quartet playing standards and, we’re promised, a few original compositions. Details of the performances during September are as follows:

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.
