Bebop Spoken There

Jackie Paris: "A singer's got to be able to tell a story. Frank Sinatra and Nat Cole are best at that; Mel Tormé too. I like to take a lyric that means something and sing it right to the person it was meant for." - (DownBeat October 11, 1962).

Ashington Jazz Club - Press release

It’s a double bill at Ashington Jazz Club next month. Italian Duo Dos Guitars will share the stage with violinist Elaine Binney from Winlaton and her group The Jazz Rascals from Whitley Bay. We look forward to an eclectic mix of styles and numbers from these talented young musicians.
The concert on April 4 starts at 8:30 pm - upstairs at the Elephant in Newbiggin Road, Ashington.
Additional Information
Dos Guitars:-
Music lovers are in for a real treat this Easter Weekend as the world class Italian Guitar Duo “DOS” embark on their UK Tour. As part of their performances they will be playing in six venues across Northumberland. Originating from Fossano in Northern Italy, guitarists Luca Allievi and Allessandro Brizio play a mixture of gypsy, hot club, swing and jazz standards as well as their own arrangements of contemporary covers. In their homeland they are seen as the premier guitarists of their generation performing in concert halls and festivals all over Europe. This will be their first time in England and they are looking forward to performing in more intimate settings with their audience. They will be joined by local favourites Angie and Robert Turnbull, who have organised the tour after meeting Luca and Allessandro while performing in Saint Malo, France two years ago.
Elaine Binney:-
Elaine has been classically trained for ten years under the renowned violinist Erardo Evans and received impeccable theory training from Mr Phillip Walton and Mr Michael Dutton. During this time she toured Europe with local orchestras and performed for several prestigious events at such venues as the Purcell Rooms in London and the Sage Gateshead. During this time she performed on Metro Radio and received masterclasses from the world-famous soloist and Northern Sinfonia leader, Bradley Creswick. At 18 years old, she achieved her ABRSM diploma in performance. She has also appeared with the New Century Ragtime Orchestra.
Elaine is now back in Newcastle and working on her own projects including her violin-led jazz band 'Elaine Binney and the Jazz Rascals'

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.
