Bebop Spoken There

Bill Reglein (JJ Babbitt m/pieces): "We made this mouthpiece for Eddie Harris. He played tenor sax and trumpet. He played in some pretty rough bars. The story goes that he was afraid he'd get in a fight and get his teeth knocked out. He figured that if even that happened he could still play tenor. So, the request came in, 'Can I get a reed mouthpiece for my trumpet?' the company made exactly one." - (DownBeat October 2019).

Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2012's Ayanna returns to The Sage Gateshead Tuesday November 6, 2012

MOBO-award nominee, Ayanna, returns to The Sage Gateshead following her captivating performance at Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2012 supporting Roberto Fonseca. This time Ayanna will be supporting Kairos 4Tet in an intimate gig on Tuesday 6th November as part of their extensive 2012 UK tour.
Hoping to follow in the footsteps of Karios 4Tet and the likes of Adele and Boyz II Men, Ayanna is hoping to collect the MOBO Award for ‘Best Jazz Act’ 2012 on 3rd November.
Ayanna is a multi-talented composer, vocalist, cellist and pianist, and a rising star on the international jazz scene. She has worked alongside UK artists Courtney Pine, Nitin Sawhney, Jason Yarde, Robert Mitchell, Nick Mulvey and Gwyneth Herbert, and a host of international artists.
Winners of the MOBO Award for ‘Best Jazz Act’ 2011, Kairos  4Tet are a four-piece band who bring a modern sound to jazz.  Their 2010 debut, ‘Kairos Moment’, positioned them as one of the UK’s premier jazz acts bridging the elusive gap between crossover appeal and serious jazz credentials.  Armed with a 4* reviews and number two in MOJO Magazine’s 2011 ‘Jazz Albums of the Year’, the quartet will perform new material along with some old favourites.
Kairos 4Tet plus support Ayanna will be performing at The Sage Gateshead on Tuesday 6th November 2012 in Northern Rock Foundation Hall at 7.45pm. Tickets are £13.50 and can be booked either by calling 0191 443 4661, online at www.thesagegateshead.org or in person from The Sage Gateshead’s Ticket Office.
Presented with Jazz North East.

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.
