More Les Paul plus the Rosemary Squires Connection...

Click Here for live session and interview on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz courtesy of npr radio. 57 minutes of music and chat with Les and Marian. ------- Chatting via Email with Frank Lockyer - Rosemary Squires' husband and manager - he said "...you may like to know that Rosemary has a one off recording of herself with Les Paul." Frank continued, "I think you know that Les Paul tried to persuade Rosemary to join him to replace Mary Ford who was by then quite unwell. Rosemary, who was in New York at the time working, amongst others, the Johnny Carson Show, and her then manager, visited Les at his home and saw first hand his famous studio and multi-tracking engineering. Whilst there she recorded with him 'You always hurt the one you love' which she has kept to this day. Radio Cumbria (Anne Hopper) has called for it but I do not know when it is to be broadcast. Otherwise it is certainly exclusive and only once aired on an interview Rosemary did on BBC Wiltshire several years ago. Though flattered to be asked, Rosemary was homesick and decided against his offer and returned home." Frank also mentioned that she also has rare tapes with Eddie Thompson of a broadcast they did together for the BBC...
Perhaps we'll get a 'Dewy-eyed' song title from Rosemary?

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.

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 all of them 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.
