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.

Circumnavigate your way round to The Globe this Saturday (Nov. 7)

Samuel Eagles, one of the rising stars of the London jazz scene, brings his quartet to the Jazz Bar at the Globe on Saturday November 7. He will also be running a jazz workshop at Sage Gateshead in the afternoon.
On the previous two nights the quartet will have played at the Blue Lamp in Aberdeen and the Jazz Bar in Edinburgh – the two best jazz clubs in Scotland – so let’s give them a warm Geordie welcome.
Unusually, two of the best known jazz pundits on Tyneside (who don’t always agree) are both urging people not to miss this gig – using very similar praise.
“Samuel has emerged from the eyrie in full flight displaying a technique well capable of expressing the multitudinous rush of ideas that flow from his head/soul via either alto or soprano.”
Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here.
“Sam’s quartet injects plenty of contemporary passion into a slightly more mainstream format. The leader unleashes a torrent of ideas from his saxophone.”
Paul Bream, Jazz Alert.
You can expect top quality original jazz – contemporary yet rooted in the jazz tradition – from:
Samuel Eagles – Saxophones; Ralph Wyld – Vibraphone; Daniel Casimir – Double Bass; Dave McKeague – Drums
In the afternoon, from 2pm to 6pm, Samuel and Daniel will be leading our monthly Play Jazz! workshop at Sage Gateshead. Participants will be able to attend the evening gig at half price.
Admission to the gig is £10 on the door or you can buy in advance from http://skdl.it/1iRf2WL

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.
