A Celebration of Chris Hodgkins’ 29 years as Director of Jazz Services at PizzaExpress Jazz Club Tuesday August 26 doors 7pm, £15 - CHRIS HODGKINS QUARTET

Chris Hodgkins (tp), Diane McLoughlin (ss/as), Max Brittain (gt), Alison Rayner (bs)
plus Special Guests
Henry Lowther (tp); Christine Tobin (vc); Andrea Vicari (pn); Sophie Alloway (dm); Charlotte Glasson (ts); Juliet Kelly (vc)
In May 2014 Chris Hodgkins retired after 29 years as Director of Jazz Services, the UK’s national support organisation for jazz. Chris is a fine trumpeter and composer in his own right as well as being a tireless champion for British jazz. For this very special night Chris celebrates his long career as a leading advocate for jazz with a stellar line-up of top UK musicians.
In Chris’ regular Quartet he is joined by three top jazz musicians who are talented composers in their own right – saxophonist Diane McLoughlin, guitarist Max Brittain and bass player Alison Rayner. For this special show the Quartet is joined by several special guests representing some of the finest UK jazz musicians:
Christine Tobin – a multi-award winning jazz singer celebrated for her own songwriting as well as her acclaimed interpretations of songs by Leonard Cohen and Carole King.
Juliet Kelly – Singer and songwriter described by Jazzwise magazine as “an original talent rare amongst those who would call themselves jazz singers”
Henry Lowther – a true legend of British jazz, who can be heard on classic albums by Kenny Wheeler, Mike Gibbs and Brian Ferry, as well as in his own bands.
Charlotte Glasson – award-winning multi-instrumentalist who has worked with everyone from Oasis and The Divine Comedy to Will Gaines and Claire Martin.
Andrea Vicari – pianist, composer and renowned educator, described in the Penguin Rough Guide to Jazz as “one of the most brilliant young jazz musicians in the UK - an outstanding pianist and superbly fertile composer”
Sophie Alloway – a rising star of British Jazz. She has worked with Roots Manuva, played at Glastonbury and Bestival, appeared on Later with Jools Holland and is a member of the Lydian Collective.

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.
