Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

Mike Papapavlou & Chris Finch @ Newcastle University.April 18.

Thursday at four o’clock in King’s Hall is the place to be to hear seriously talented student musicians. This week guitarist Andrew Taylor impressed hugely playing Bach (Fugue and Allegro), then switching to electric guitar to accompany folk singers Linzi Wilson and Zoe MacCallum. The jazz session (ensuring Bebop Spoken Here’s presence) featured two of the    local scene’s nice guys - guitarist Mike Papapavlou  and pianist Chris Finch. Papapavlou introduced two numbers - Cry Me a River and Invitation - and he was in typical form, smiling and digging it! Finch played the Steinway (lucky you, Chris!) and sounded great! Two tunes, ten minutes and well worth the effort of dashing to the Uni to hear Mike and Chris.
