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.

Norvol Jazz network’s first international tour with Ingrid Jensen starts May 26th

(Press release)
Canadian trumpeter Ingrid Jensen is the first featured artist for the new northern jazz network (Norvoljazz) international touring scheme.  We are delighted to feature Ingrid as the first featured artist . Ingrid Jensen will be joined by three stellar UK musicians – Jez Franks on guitar, Andy Champion on double bass and Tim Giles on drums.  In addition to the quartet tour dates, Ingrid will also appear as a guest soloist with Colin Byrne’s Leeds Jazz Orchestra, lead masterclasses with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and will close her time in the UK with a one-off performance at Ronnie Scott’s in London featuring the Engines Orchestra.
 May 26th - Black Swan Bar & Venue, Newcastle
·         May 28th - HEART, Leeds (also featuring Jamil Sheriff on piano)
·         May 29th - Seven Jazz at Seven Arts, Chapel Allerton, Leeds (Ingrid appears with Leeds Jazz Orchestra)
·         June 1st - The Cask, Scarborough
·         June 3rd - Wakefield Jazz Club
·         June 4th - Workshops with NYJO
·         June 5th - Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, London (also featuring Phil Meadows Engines Orchestra)
The tour has been organised in a partnership between Orpheus and  Kim Macari’s Orpheus production company based in Leeds.
Ingrid Jensen is the perfect musician to be featured in Norvoljazz network’s inaugural tour. Described as one of the most gifted trumpeters of her generation, she is an exceptional voice in modern jazz. The quartet will perform in NORVOL clubs across the North and provide a unique opportunity to see this calibre of group in small, intimate venues. By partnering with NYJO and Engines Orchestra for the London date, Orpheus have built a tour which displays her broad talents, not only for small group performance but her work with large ensembles and as an educator, too.
Norvol Jazz/The Orpheus Project are grateful for the financial support provided by Arts Council England through their Grants for the Arts programme. The next Norvol Jazz headline touring artist will be announced

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.
