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...

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.
