GIJF Day 2: Jazz Record Requests

(Review by Russell).
A live edition of Jazz Record Requests! The welcoming yet authoritative voice of Alyn Shipton visits jazz homes tuned to BBC 3 every Saturday afternoon. Here at the Sage Shipton invited the audience to listen to requests, request a track of their own and hear    some jazz ‘live’ from the stage in Hall Two at the Sage. The programme will be broadcast this coming Saturday (13 April) on Radio 3, so you will have to listen to find out which tracks were chosen for broadcast!
A bonus for the audience in the hall was a performance by Lighthouse Trio (Tim Garland, Gwilym Simcock and Asaf Sirkis), Simcock solo and the wonderful Zoe Rahman played Ellington. The musicians, including Larry Stabbins (he was on late night duty the previous evening), joined the presenter to discuss their love of the music.  Shipton and the Sage are to be commended for including a listener’s choice of a tune by the West Jesmond Rhythm Kings featuring the late Mike Durham (musician and festival organiser of the international Whitley Bay Jazz Festival and Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party). It is to be hoped JRR, as it is affectionately known, returns next year and the year after.

Er, well, not recently he doesn't - the timing having been messed about by 1) the differing dates of introduction of US/UK daylight time and 2) Wagner (yet again!)

It's about time Radio 3 fixed the time of JRR and pushed the opera to the graveyard slot! Oooh, was that a pig I just saw flying by my window?

When I finally did get to hear JRR (2130 this evening) it was certainly well worth the wait.

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.
