Bebop Spoken There

Michael Dease: "Slide [Hampton] is also one of the people to expand the range of the horn, so he's popping out high Fs like they're breakfast cereals." - (JazzTimes Oct. 2019).

It's Xmas! Tomorrow (Wednesday Dec. 23) you can Carouse at Culler, Party at the Porthole, Chill-out at the Chilli

With at least 3 jazz parties tomorrow Xmas is well and truly upon us. In the afternoon, those party animals the Vieux Carré Jazzmen are skateboarding down to the Crescent Club in Cullercoats for their latest piss-up. Folk legend Johnny Handle, not to be confused with Friedrich Handel who is dead, is on piano and, as per Monday, I'm sure there will be an abundance of food on the pool table.
Up river at the Porthole Laurie Brown's mainstream men will be keeping the flag flying or should it be swinging? most certainly yes.
In the evening, Budvivar are the guests at Dave Weisser's "Take it to the Bridge" session in the Chilli on Chillingham Road, Heaton. Expect some sitting in from Harley "Thelonious" Johnson who helped Budvivar out at the weekend when Chris Finch was indisposed.
I'll happily fore-go my Acker Spelk's for this one. What am I saying?
See you there or there or there.
Lance.
PS: If you live at Eighton Banks, where the air is rarified, the Maine Street Jazzmen with Olive will come a-wassailing at the Lambton Arms around 1:00 pm providing they get up Sheriff Hill. I should point out that Sheriff Hill is a steep hill and not a member of the constabulary.
PPS: The Maine Street are also doing it at Rosie Malone's on Xmas Eve lunchtime - bring on the mince pies and the mulled brown ale.

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.
