Bebop Spoken There

Bill Reglein (JJ Babbitt m/pieces): "We made this mouthpiece for Eddie Harris. He played tenor sax and trumpet. He played in some pretty rough bars. The story goes that he was afraid he'd get in a fight and get his teeth knocked out. He figured that if even that happened he could still play tenor. So, the request came in, 'Can I get a reed mouthpiece for my trumpet?' the company made exactly one." - (DownBeat October 2019).

Former Yamaha Jazz Scholars include Kit Downes, Calum Gourlay, who along with drummer James Maddren received a prestigious Mercury Prize nomination for the debut Kit Downes Trio album ‘Golden’, produced by Andy Ross, plus Zem Audu, Josh Arcoleo, Matt Robinson and Dave Hamblett who have gone on to become highly regarded and in-demand musicians on the contemporary jazz scene.

Five of the seven featured Yamaha Jazz Scholars (as Alex Woods is studying in the USA and Sam Miles touring overseas) will each perform a live 20 minute set with their own bands at the 606 launch on Wednesday 4th December as follows:ElLIOT GALVIN (Piano), LLOYD HAINES (Drums), ANGUS MILNE (Double Bass), DAVID INGAMELLS - (Drums) andPETER JOHNSTONE (Piano). (Full details below)
The CD is the result of Yamaha's unique partnership with Jazzwise magazine, the All-Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group, PPL and 606 Club, as part of a highly acclaimed scholarship programme now in its seventh year, offering financial support with performance and recording opportunities to a new generation of young jazz musicians.
The CD series is expected to reach 100,000 copies circulated since its debut release in 2008 and former guest artists have included Led Bib, Gareth Williams, Leanne Carroll, Nigel Hitchcock, Julian Joseph, Gwilym Simcock, Jason Rebello, Ryan Quigley, YolanDa Brown, Georgina Jackson, Emma Smith and Mica Paris.
Michael Connarty MP, Co-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group stated, “Yamaha added another dimension to the Parliamentary Jazz Groups' efforts to promote jazz, with their wonderful Yamaha Jazz Scholarships, developing our events from appreciation and enjoyment of jazz to encouraging jazz education. I hope this showcase CD of the young talents we enjoy at our 'live' Yamaha jazz scholarship concerts in Parliament will open peoples' ears to the high quality of jazz music being created in the UK.  Yamaha gets my Vote - of Thanks."
Yamaha Managing Director Mark Rolfe commented, “The Yamaha New Jazz Sessions’ cd and live launch at the 606 have added showcase and professional development opportunities to these innovative scholarships that have further extended our relationship with Jazzwise, PPL and the All Party Parliamentary Jazz Appreciation Group. We are committed to the promotion of Jazz Performance and these scholarships complement our many other music education and student support initiatives. What better way to support the studies and showcase the talent of the UK’s finest upcoming young Jazz musicians than through financial assistance, live performance and the recording opportunity that features them alongside major artists in the jazz world on the cover of the UK’s biggest selling jazz magazine.”
This annual event has become a hot ticket on the jazz calendar so early booking is strongly recommended.

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.
