Brass Durham International Festival

For over two weeks (July 5 - July 21) Durham City and several surrounding villages will resound to the sound of brass instruments - heard in many different formats. Marching Bands, Brass Bands and various jazz inspired outfits.
For readers of this blog the outstanding event will most surely be the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra's presentation - In The Spirit of Duke. Held in the Gala Theatre on July 8 this is an opportunity to hear, in my opinion, the number one big band in the UK and possibly elsewhere if reports of their recent visit to New York are anything to go by! Tickets are £17.50 and £12.50 (concessions). Don't miss out they are simply sensational!
Other delights include The Northern Monkey Brass Band, Hannabiell and Midnight Blue, the Baghdaddies, New York Brass Band, Jazz in my Pants and many more.

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.
