Bebop Spoken There

Davina Lozier: "So many people never settle into who they really are. They just do what they want to do because they want to be Oscar Peterson or Muddy Waters or Britney Spears. But I am what I am: a chubby, 40-year-old woman who's still doing it." - (DownBeat, December 2019).

Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2013 Preview

Friday 5 April. Hoochie Coochie. 11:00 pm.
Late Night Jazz, Funk and Soul featuring Soweto Kinch.
(Preview by Russell)
The 2013 Gateshead International Jazz Festival marks something of a departure for the late night jam session. For the first time it is being held across the Tyne in Newcastle. So, concert goers at the Sage will need to make their way over to Hoochie Coochie on Pilgrim Street. Walk over the Tyne Bridge, keep on going and you will pass the front door - STOP! Go in, pay on the door and enjoy the vibe. Warren, the proprietor of this stylish venue, is sure to give you a warm welcome. He loves his music (he is a Soul Man) and knows good jazz when he hears it. He has given unstinting support to the local jazz scene and it is good to see Hoochie Coochie associated with the big jazz bash at the Sage. The opening night features Soweto Kinch. It is likely that some free-style rapping will be going down, Kinch’s alto is sure to be at hand, DJs will be doing their thing and you can order a cocktail or open a bottle of London Pride, sit back and relax or get up and dance. Hey! This is Hoochie Coochie!

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.
