Bebop Spoken There

T-Bone Walker: "In fact, there's a girl out there in California in a hospital right now because I was playing a blues that affected her so much that she lost control of herself and started crying, and she stood up and fell over backwards and fell on another table and injured her spine. That's the way the blues affects some people." - (Down Beat October 15, 1942).

Steve Wilson: “I originally wanted to be a drummer, but changed course when I heard Eddie Harris and Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Cannonball Adderley live when I was 9 or 10.” – (Down Beat November 2014).

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.

PS:I don't care what your political views are - you can love or hate Cameron, Clegg, Milliband, Farage, Genghis Khan or Julius Caesar - just don't air them here!
Contact: lanceliddle@gmail.com I look forward to hearing from you.
