Bebop Spoken There

Peter Woodford: "I noticed when I went to hear some jazz in a little pub on the outskirts of London the people were really listening. I'm used to guys in bars only interested in making out with their girl friends. Here the idea seems to be to take a girl, enjoy the music, and make out later." - (Crescendo September 1972).

Jazz for Free Thinkers @ Sage Gateshead

BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking Festival takes place at Sage Gateshead this weekend (Nov 6-8). The annual event gathers together free thinkers, the curious and the bemused. This year Jazz Record Requests pops-up on the concourse. You are welcome to attend a live broadcast of the programme on Saturday at 4:00pm. Please arrive fifteen minutes before Alyn Shipton and guests go ‘live’. One request is to hear Barbara Thompson and another listener wants to hear Henry Grimes. You may spot a familiar face!
Following JRR at five o’clock on Radio 3 is Jazz Line-Up. A pre-London Jazz Festival special, there should be something worth listening to. At midnight, again on Radio 3, the subject of Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz is Dizzy Gillespie.
Finally, on Monday over on Radio 2, Paul Jones will be playing new releases including a track from County Durham’s blues-rock guitarist Mitch Laddie.
