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.

From the Blue Note Harrogate to Mississippi Goddam!

(Preview by Russell)
Wynton comes to Yorkshire and Laura goes to NYC. BBC television does jazz well. The problem is, there isn’t enough of it. Two programmes (one after the other) on BBC4 this coming Friday (May 29) are welcome but there is precious little else. Grateful for crumbs tune in at 7:30pm for Nina Simone and Me with Laura Mvula. British singer Laura Mvula travels to New York to enthuse about her idol, Ms Nina Simone. Hard on the heels of the half hour documentary, Wynton Marsalis leads the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in a Blue Note special recorded at the Royal Hall in Harrogate – Wynton Marsalis Plays Blue Note (8:00pm).
From TV crumbs to more like a slice of the jazz cake on BBC Radio. Today (Saturday 23) Cleo Laine looks at the all-girl swing bands in the UK and USA. First broadcast in 1999, Archive on 4: Some Like It Hot airs on BBC Radio 4 Extra at three o’clock. JRR on Radio 3 at five o’clock remembers Wardell Gray (found dead in the desert outside Las Vegas all of sixty years ago). Jazz Line-Up follows at 6:00pm. The programme includes a concert performance by Konrad Wiszniewski (heard with SNJO at Sage Gateshead) and pianist Euan Stevenson. Bank holiday Monday’s Jazz on 3 features Joe Lovano and on Tuesday over on Radio 2, the man of the moment, Kurt Elling, presents an investigative report on Fats Waller’s encounters with Al Capone in Fats Waller and Al Capone (10:00pm).

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.
