A Look Ahead to GIJF - The Peggy Lee Project

As the Gateshead International Jazz Festival approaches (March 23 - 25) I thought I'd draw attention to one of the concerts I'm looking forward to - Gwyneth Herbert and the Peggy Lee Project with the (virtual) Buck Clayton All-stars.
One of the UK’s most well-known singer-songwriter, Gwyneth Herbert, joins forces with the members of the Buck Clayton Legacy Band to explore the jazz repertoire of Peggy Lee. The band’s arrangers, Matthias Seuffert, Adrian Fry and Menno Daams, have taken Lee’s work with Jack Marshall, Quincy Jones and Billy May to create new charts for what has been recognised as one of Europe’s leading mainstream bands.
Gwyneth brings her own unique gift for storytelling in song to reinterpret tales of love lost and found, as well as the life affirming qualities of music itself. Expect vibrant playing from what Jazz UK called this “knockout band” plus tears of pain and joy from songs both familiar and less well known. Gwyneth and co-leader Alyn Shipton will also introduce the event with film and audio clips of Peggy Lee herself.
Gwyneth Herbert: Vocals, 
Alyn Shipton: Bass, 
Menno Daams
Ian Smith: Trumpets, 
Alan Barnes, 
Matthias Seuffert: Reeds, 
Adrian Fry: Trombone, 
Martin Litton: Piano, 
Martin Wheatley: Guitar, 
Bobby Worth: Drums. 
With a pre-concert talk at 7pm. Free to ticket holders. 
"Life is for Living" - The Peggy Lee Project - Hall Two Saturday March 24. 8:00pm. £16.50.

I'm also looking forward to the Peter King Quartet. One of the best alto sax players ever.

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.
