Bebop Spoken There

Kathyrn Williams: “I got into Miles Davis when I was a teenager. But I’m nowhere near as knowledgeable as Anthony [Kerr]: he is an encyclopedia of jazz, with a real in-depth, academic knowledge. I’m just a fan.” – (Jazz Journal December 2017).

Christian McBride: "He [Horace Silver] was the whole package" – (Downbeat September 2014).

Josh Lane @ King’s Hall Newcastle Uni. November 6

Josh Lane (trumpet & flugelhorn), Ella El-Salahi (vocals), Jamie Lawson (piano), Tim Farrow (double bass) & Joe Cromey-Hawke (drums)
(Review by Russell)
Final year student Josh Lane (brass) shared the late afternoon student performances’ hour with an array of spectacularly good fellow students. An operatic soprano wowed the large turn-out with some Puccini, superb flautist Anne-Marie Rosa played a solo piece by Ibert and folk artists led by Callum Younger (bodhran) improvised a set of jigs. The latter clan could easily sit-in at any of the many of the jazz jam sessions around town.
Lane chose to play the music of Michael League’s Brooklyn hipsters Snarky Puppy. Lane checked-out the Puppies at Sage Gateshead earlier this year and, clearly impressed, chose to work on Shofukan. Opening on flugel (the wonderful Ella El-Salahi standing alongside him), Lane hit a groove. Pianist Jamie Lawson jabbed and stabbed, bassist Tim Farrow in tandem with drummer Joe Cromey-Hawke hammered it out on the raised stage. El-Salahi swooped down, around and in between Lane’s lines (flugel then trumpet). Josh Lane is in his final year of studies. At the end of the academic year take the opportunity  to hear him when he gives his degree finals’ recital.

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.
Finally, bear in mind that this is a jazz-based site when submitting your album.

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.
