Quietest/skintest month in years. Apart from the kids (Francis Tulip Quartet) very kindly playing my at work colleagues' art exhibition launch in Seaham on the eighth, my only other gig was my first ever country and western gig, Lee Ann Womack - well I had to with a name like that - at the RNCM in Manchester. I'd have preferred a slide guitar and a fiddle to add to the two guitars/bouzouki, but she's a great singer and more where that came from is - sexist alert - the best Girls Night In album since Abba Gold.

Busiest month in a while for CDs with over 20 since payday (24th) but most of them will go to the back of the queue. Hoping to do a Soul Night in November concentrating on the ladies to exploit - sorry, pay tribute to Aretha, so I'm catching up on my ladies stuff.

It was actually the Tulip/ Metcalfe Quintet feat Alex Alex Thompson, just in case anybody might want to sue me.

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.
