Bebop Spoken There

Davina Lozier: "So many people never settle into who they really are. They just do what they want to do because they want to be Oscar Peterson or Muddy Waters or Britney Spears. But I am what I am: a chubby, 40-year-old woman who's still doing it." - (DownBeat, December 2019).

Tonight Two gigs for a Quid.

Xmas may be almost upon us but Santa has come early for jazz fans.
Tonight that great new band, Lickety Split play on the Concourse at The Sage, Gateshead. It is free and they give the down beat at 6:00pm.
I have yet to hear them although everyone who has done raves about the band so give it a shot.
The early start means you also have time to hot foot over to The Chilli on Chillingham Road, Heaton for the annual Xmas Party by the Take It To The Bridge outfit. Admission is but one pound sterling. I understand tenor player Doug is ill and unable to make it so I'm sure Dave will find an adequate replacement - Paul Gowland perhaps?.
So there you have it - 2 gigs for £1 with the added attraction of, possibly, some of Dave's legendary applecake.
Alternatively you could fork out £34.50 for Jools Holland at the City Hall.

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.
