Bebop Spoken There

Jackie Paris: "A singer's got to be able to tell a story. Frank Sinatra and Nat Cole are best at that; Mel Tormé too. I like to take a lyric that means something and sing it right to the person it was meant for." - (DownBeat October 11, 1962).

hi lance

ive been 3 times since it started 5weeks ago.

the jazz cafe jam is led by the irrepressible pete gilligan on keys with paul granger on double bass, young omid has bought kit along most weeks, mark williams has been strutting his high energy stuff using the infamous jazz cafe house guitar amp,sarah travener is on tenor, and lindsay hannon displays her eclectic vocal talents.

this lineup has been joined at times by an impressive horn section including stewart and fiona from budvivar, and chris finch and i have both stepped away from the piano to play tenor and trumpet respectively.
many other guest guitarists, pianists singers, a harmonica players rappers and drummers(including david carnegie last sunday) have got on the bandstand and contributed to what seems to me to be one of the coolest things happening on a sunday afternoon in newcastle.
it starts at around two thirty,
and ends when it ends (between half nine and twelve when ive been)

bring your instruments, bring your pals

Glad to be there!

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.

Similarly, CDs received by post will only be considered if accompanied by sufficient background material.
