NYC Poll honours George Wein

Once again, I'm thanking Maurice Summerfield. On this occasion, for drawing my attention to the results of the Fifth Annual Fans Decision Hot House Poll.
Hot House is the longest running NYC Jazz mag and the first thing you must pick-up when you get there - It's their version of Bebop Spoken Here! Needless to say, we're delighted to see George Wein (pictured left) voted as the Honoree of the Year. George has connections with the UK and, on his last visit to the area, he was at Blaydon Jazz Club where he was impressed by Paul Edis - maybe Paul will, one day, be on this list.

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.

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.
