Sweet Thursday

There's a lot happening tomorrow in and beyond the region.
Thursday night at Gateshead Old Town Hall is a JNE presentation of the Julian Siegel Quartet. This is a line-up of first call musicians with Siegel on tenor, Gene Calderazzo on drums, Oli Hayhurst on bass and Liam Noble on piano.
Down the road apiece at The Sage is the Christian Wallumrod Ensemble, whilst over the bridge - at Hoochie Coochie - local favourites Legohead are on stage.
Looking further afield, to Leeds, the Tony Faulkner Yorkshire Jazz Orchestra makes its debut at Seven Arts (31 Harrogate Rd., Chapel Allerton, Leeds LS7 3PD.) It's an impressive line-up of some of Yorkshire's finest.
Rod Mason (alt/sop/fl); Dave Hogan (alt/clt/fl); Ben Lowman (ten/sop); Katie Hawcutt (ten/clt);Tony Harper (bar/bs clt/); Dale Gibson, Mark Chandler, Greg Nicholas, Ian Chalk and Kim Macari (tpts); Lee Hallam, Brian Archer, Chris Burge (tmb); Tony Smith (bs tmb); Derrick Harris (gtr); Graham Hearn (pno); Garry Jackson (bs);Peter Fairclough (dms); Louise Gibbs (voice); Tony Faulkner (director).
Rod Mason, of course, is well known in our locale for his work with VOTNJO and Louise Gibbs appears at Durham Jazz Festival on November 11.

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.
