Bebop Spoken There

Hugh Masekela: “I advise every kid to check out their past because without a past you are in limbo.” (Songlines December 2017)

Leo Richardson: “I think your image is really important. You look at those old Blue Note recordings and you look at the liner note, the booklet and they’re in the studio and they’re wearing shirt and ties. They used to wear suits all the time.” – (Jazzwise December 2017/January 2018)

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.

Sunday Afternoon at Hoochie - SSBB - don't miss it!

C'mon and hear, C'mon and hear 
The Strict-ly Smokin' Big Band 
It's just the bestest band what am
(led) by Michael Lamb.
(Lance/Irving Berlin).
This is our first visit to Hoochie Coochie for 2015 and this month we're playing on Fathers Day.
With tickets at a mere £5 its the perfect way to round off your day with dad!
We have three amazing vocalists with us on Sunday (Lindsay Hannon, F'reeze and James Hedley) with the rest of our amazing 20 piece big band in tow.
We always have an absolute blast at Hoochie, so don't miss out this weekend particularly as the monthly residency at the Millstone is off this month due to refurbishment (of the pub not the band!)
Michael L.

“...this is such a swinging band, laid back, cool and relaxed....”

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.
