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)

The Things They Say!

Jamie Lawson @ King’s Hall. October 2

The start of the new academic year at Newcastle University heralded the resumption of the weekly student performance sessions in King’s Hall. The usual eclectic offering – a one hour revue featuring classical, folk, jazz, popular song and more – didn’t happen. A freshers’ week hangover perhaps being responsible for the low-key start!
A curtailed programme presented three students – Louise Anderson (voice), Rachel Hamer (folk singer) and Jamie Lawson (jazz piano).
Bebop Spoken Here went along to hear the piano player. Jamie Lawson, beginning his third year, played Misty. A front row seat, a close-up view of Lawson at the Steinway -the man can play. A fine interpretation of a standard, let’s hope we hear Lawson again. Hopefully he will turn up at the Jazz Café’s regular jam session. Get along to the Caff next Tuesday just in case he wanders in. Peter Gilligan and co. will be impressed. 
Russell.
