The queue forms on the right girls...

The Naturist Foundation Jazz and Real Ale Festival announce the full line-up for their Jazz and Real Ale Festival which takes place from the 27th to the 30th June 2013. The event is the only four day outdoor jazz festival in the UK. Jerry Turner, Music Director of the Festival said “I am very pleased with the programme for this year which features some jazz greats as well as emerging talent. The Thursday evening features young musicians who are establishing a name for themselves such as Yazz Ahmed, Kieren Stickle McLeod and Jack Davies. The rest of the festival includes musicians such as Peter King the greatest alto player in the UK, Frank Griffith and Jean Toussaint from the USA, Vasilis Xenopoulos from Greece, Digby Fairweather, Julian Marc Stringle, Ben Cummings, Byron Wallen, the MJQ Celebration with Karen Sharp, and the solo piano of Keith Nichols over Sunday lunch. A New Orleans style umbrella parade through the grounds is
followed by Harry Strutters Jive and Swing for a fun filled Saturday afternoon.”
The event is clothing optional so non-naturist jazz fans are welcome. Alongside the music marquee is a real ale and cider tent with drinks at around £2.50 a pint. Plenty of reasonable priced food is available.
The Foundation is set in 50 acres of ancient woodland and meadowland and has a covered heated  swimming pool and sauna. Camping packages are available as are day tickets, all offering great value for money. We are near Swanley and Orpington. Free car parking. Full details on www.naturistfoundation.org

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.
