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 them all 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.

From the Village Hotel to the London Jazz Festival

(Preview by Russell).
Richard Pite, currently starring at the Classic Jazz Party on North Tyneside, talks to Clare Teal (Sunday, BBC Radio2, 9:00pm) about his Jazz Repertory Company, days before heading to this year’s London Jazz Festival to present several productions (an eagerly anticipated show must surely be the celebration of the Newport Jazz Festival). More from London on Monday night as Paul Jones (Radio 2, 7:00pm) presents a two-part review of the recent Blues Fest at the Royal Albert Hall. Listen out for Stanley’s Mitch Laddie! Earlier on Monday on In Tune over on Radio 3 (4:30pm) Alexander Stewart sings accompanied by harpist Alexander Thomas. Late Monday (11:00pm) Swiss trio Vein are joined by Greg Osby on Jazz on 3.
Jamie Cullum (Tuesday, Radio 2, 7:00pm) features Arun Ghosh and Cullum himself pops up on Wednesday’s In Tune (4:30pm) to plug his new big band-inspired CD. Friday’s Front Row (Radio 4, 7:15pm) talks to Jan Garbarek about his work with the Hilliard Ensemble. Finally, Radio 3 on Friday night devotes four and a half hours to the 2014 London Jazz Festival. Radio 3 Live in Concert: Jazz Voice (7:30pm) comes live from the Barbican. Guy Barker conducts the London Jazz Festival Orchestra in a star-studded vocal gathering including Dee Dee Bridgewater and Kurt Elling from America and Georgie Fame. At eleven o’clock Jazz on 3: London Jazz Festival Launch comes live from Ronnie’s, the line-up includes bassist Stanley Clarke, reedsman John Surman and vocalist Karin Krog, Louis Moholo-Moholo and Dee Dee Bridgewater.

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.
