Bebop Spoken There

Paul Desmond (As recalled by Marian McPartland): "I went up to him [Dave Brubeck] and said, 'Man, like Wigsville! You really grooved me with those nutty changes.' And Brubeck replied, 'White man speak with forked tongue.'" – (Down Beat February 1998).

Clint Eastwood: "Any friend of jazz is a friend of mine!" - (Down Beat January 1998).

YORK JAZZ SCENE ISSUE 3 LAUNCH!

Anna Lacey sent me the following information and invite:
Event: YORK JAZZ SCENE ISSUE 3 LAUNCH! "The only magazine for the jazz community in York!"
What: Exhibit
Host: York Jazz Scene
Start Time: Today, Wednesday 26 August at 20:45
End Time: Today, Wednesday 26 August at 23:15
Where: The Black Swan Inn.
Anna tells me that, because of this enlarged edition, a smaller print run means that copies will be like gold dust! so the Black Swan seems to be the place to be tonight (Wednesday).
As an added incentive tenor player Iain Dixon is the guest star.
Sounds like a good night is in store - and it's a great local mag. Got the blues to be there.
Lance.

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.
