Preview: A Sage Sunday Postmodern Jukebox

This Sunday, February 18, Sage One is going to be full to the rafters for the return visit of Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox. A viral internet sensation, Bradlee’s skillful use of social media platforms to promote his arrangements of present-day pop tunes, often in a ragtime or twenties’ jazz age style, has won him literally millions of fans. YouTube hits can be counted in their many tens of millions as the New Jersey-raised pianist and arranger tours the world playing to capacity audiences entranced by his shows which are presented, and viewed, through a sepia-tinted lens.


A twelve-year-old Bradlee was captivated by Rhapsody in Blue. He would later go on to play jazz piano in New York and work in off-Broadway theatre productions. Postmodern Jukebox uses the talents of Bradlee’s many musical associates. One project to the next, one tour to the next, Scott Bradlee employs a bewildering number of musicians and at Sage Gateshead on Sunday (Feb 18) the roll call is likely to include new faces, new names, but the experience will be every bit as good as last time. From All About That (Upright) Bass to a ragtime version of Tainted Love to R.E.M.’s Shiny Happy People performed as a 1940s swing number, this is one show you won’t want to miss.

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.
