Pardon me boy...



Once again, the hugely popular 'Jazz 'n' Real Ale Trains' are running in June and July. 
Northern Rail and its partner, Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership, have received 100% positive feedback for these events - see attached pic's. You'll hear the best of 20's jazz featuring the music of Louis Armstrong, Kid Ory and Clarence Williams among others. Special guest musicians include Gavin Lee, clarinet (30 June and 7 July); from Hong Kong, trumpeter, Colin Aitchison (Sat. 7 July); sousaphone ace, Mike Harrison (Sat. 9 June) - expect to also hear 'jazz train' regulars Brian Bennett and Terry Harvey (banjos); Derek Fleck, (clarinet); Fred Rowe (trumpet) and Phil Rutherford, sousaphone - of course, if you prefer experimental and avant-garde free jazz, you may prefer to stay at home.
Join Fred Rowe's Railroad Stompers and the Vieux Carre Hot 4 on a scenic train ride through the Tyne Valley to Carlisle, calling at Wylam, Stocksfield, Riding Mill, Corbridge, Hexham, Haydon Bridge, Bardon Mill, Haltwhistle, Brampton and Wetheral.
All dates include a bar serving real ale from Matfen's High House Farm Brewery on the Newcastle to Carlisle train.

See you on board,

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.
