Radio Triptych (Updated)

(Preview by Russell)
At this year’s Gateshead International Jazz Festival Paul Edis, Paul Susans and Rob Walker took to the Jazz Line-Up stage on the concourse at Sage Gateshead. The trio – Triptych – played to a large audience of festival goers and the occasion was recorded for future broadcast. It’s taken six months, but the wait is over. Tomorrow, Saturday 30th, Triptych’s set can be heard on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line-Up programme at 5:00pm. Triptych's set actually starts approximately 41 mins in featuring part of Dr Gonzo's and Fragment Reprise/Dark Ages/Fragment Finale. Prior to this, there are pieces from Miles Mosley's festival gig as well as a track from the Gareth Lochrane Big Band's recent CD - Fistfight at the Barn Dance - and one from Nat Steele's tribute to the MJQ.
Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz at midnight on Radio 3 looks at the career of Buddy Rich from his days with Tommy Dorsey through to his own fabled powerhouse big band. Monday evening over on Radio 2 at ten o’clock it’s Gregory Porter on Nat King Cole and at eleven on Radio 3 Jazz Now presents an 80th birthday concert featuring Mike Gibbs with an all star big band. Presenter Soweto Kinch talks to Gibbs prior to last week’s Scarborough Jazz Festival performance.

The Jazz Baroness has been broadcast on more than one occasion on BBC Radio and on Monday it will be broadcast three times in one day! BBC Radio 4 Extra runs the documentary about Monk’s muse, Pannonica at 6:30am, 1:30pm and again at 8:30pm. Friday 6th October at eight o’clock over on Radio 2 it’s Friday Night is Music Night. A ‘jazz special’ with Madeline Bell and Anthony Strong, and Big Band Bonanza, led by Joe Stilgoe, features arrangements by some of the greats including Nelson Riddle, Buddy Rich and Gordon Goodwin plus a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald. The concert was recorded in March at the Forum Theatre in Billingham, Stockton on Tees.

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.
