Bebop Spoken There

Faye McCalman: "For a while I would hear other artists and feel that I need to be like that person, have what they have; but then I realised that everyone has their own thing and what I connect with most is when I can tell an artist is just being themselves." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

A Few For The Diary.

Milestones: The Music of Miles Davis is the next Jazz North East presentation - tomorrow - Saturday Jan 15 at Gateshead Old Town Hall and it features pieces associated with Miles in the 1950s/'60s including the Kind of Blue compositions as well as others from in and around the same period. The stellar line-up is Alan Barnes (alt); Ian Price (ten); Graeme Flowers (tpt); Terry Seabrook (pno); Paul Whitten (bs); Spike Wells (dms).
The concert starts at 8:00pm but there is a pre-concert video at 7:30pm.
----- Splinter's Sunday evening sessions at the Bridge Hotel, Newcastle continue this Sunday Jan 16 with the Sam Coombes Quartet.
-----
The Schmazz Factor Competition takes place at The Sage on Jan 20 and features four bands plus last year's winners the Carpus Trio. There are more details elsewhere on this blog.
-----
The New Century Ragtime Orchestra are at Gateshead Old Town Hall on Saturday Jan 22,
-----
Splinter's Sunday Jan 23 session is a Gala of Gals featuring, in alphabetical order, Claire Kelly, Lindsay Hannon, Ruth Lambert and Zoe Gilby.
----- The Creole Choir of Cuba play The Sage on Jan 27 and it promises to be, as Mark Lamarr described it on BBC2, "A mesmerising experience...astonishing stuff...I'm lost for words...absolutely extraordinary." They were also, I'm told, a sensation at the London Jazz Festival and a big hit at the Edinburgh Festival. Within the confines of Hall Two it should be mindblowing.
These are just some of highlights...
