Bebop Spoken There

Piers Paul Read: "Bruce Reynolds and Biggs shared an interest in Sex, Jazz and Hemingway." - (The Train Robbers by Piers Paul Read, Coronet Books 1979.)

George Shearing: "Speaking about Johann Sebastian Bach I think he'd be a real jazzer if he were alive today. I mean any man who has two wives, twenty kids, gets kicked out of the church for being too harmonically radical and drinks beer can't be all wrong can he?" - (Crescendo March 1984.)

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.

Book now for weekend workshop 1-2 August at the Globe

One, two, one, two, three, and book now.
There’s a few places left and all instruments are welcome. We’ve got saxes of all sizes, guitars, basses, drums, vocalists (but no trumpets or pianists – come on don’t be shy).
This is a great opportunity to spend the whole weekend playing, listening and learning in the company of others who want to improve their jazz skills – guided by the inspirational James Birkett and Judith Thompson. Participants will be divided into two groups based on experience.
Participants also get free admission to the Williams-Tanton Quartet gig on the Saturday evening and a chance to jam with the band.

You too can own the Globe
Now we’ve bought the Globe we need more people involved and more money invested to make it the best possible venue. As often happens with old buildings, the refurbishment cost more than we expected. We need further investment for
• Buying  sound and lighting equipment
• Refurbishing the kitchen
• Renovating the roof terrace
• Improving the exterior of the building
• Repaying the money we borrowed to install the lift (we are proud to be one of the few small music venues in Newcastle to be fully accessible on both floors).
We don’t just need money. We want more people to play an active part in making this unique venture work. For more information visit http://jazz.coop/invest-2/

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.
