Tonight @ Hoochie Coochie

Redemption Jazz is a relatively new quartet formed by 4 guys with a varied musical pedigree going back to the 1960's - they are beginning to make waves. Comprising brothers Jim and John Hall on keys and sax respectively, Martin Wake, drums and Keith Tulip, bass, they received favourable feedback from last weeks gig at the Chilli and tonight will be an opportunity for BSH to check them out. I like the clips I've heard on their website - Monk, Coltrane and some originals - a post Blue Note sound well worth hearing live.

Hoochie Coochie, 54 Pilgrim St., Newcastle. 8:00pm.

Hi BSH

Just thought that I should say that Redemption at the Hoochie Coochie were absolutely excellent tonight. Great Coltrane and suberb Corea- in particular Chameleon and a spellbinding multi tempo version of God bless the Child.

Great musicians-More please!

Haven't enjoyed myself so much at a gig in Newcastle since medieval times in the New Orleans Jazz Club at Forth Banks.
I would recommend anyone interested in BSH to go see them!!

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.
