What the **** did I do? You want to know sumpin' 'bout that floozie Pearl?

For starters, honey, you always want to do, what the boys don't want to do.
I mean to say - When you strut your stuff around - OMG London Bridge is falling down!
Another thing, Lulu. When you get blue, frankly, you go cuckoo Like a clock up on the shelf - you're the kind of smartie that breaks up every party.
Hullabalooloo, guys don't bring Lulu.
She'll come by herself - she always does!
And goes home the same way I might add!

I wanna be around to pick up the pieces when somebody breaks your nose like you broke mine.

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.
