Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Michael James: "...if Ellis [Herb] has merits they are definitely not these [fantastic fire and drive]". - (Review of Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre (LP). Jazz Monthly May 1960).

Zoe for London Jazz Festival.

(Preview by Steve T/Photo courtesy of Ken Drew )
Last year it was the face of Emma Fisk beaming up at you from the EFG website and this year it's another of our leading ladies, strawberry-blond bombshell Zoe Gilby, accompanied purely coincidentally by our very own innovative bass blaster Andy Champion.
Her natural warmth and charisma, not to mention a healthy dose of North East charm, and very much the classier end of the scale, ensure she's perfect for hosting a kids’ event in the Capital. The sessions are for age 5+ and are always popular and amongst the first to sell out each year and I know they'll both be fabulous.
Tickets are on sale from 10am on Friday 8th July priced £5 - £10.
The performance is at Cadogan Hall on Saturday November 12th from 2pm to 3pm.
Here’s what the EFG publicity machine has to say:
Saturday 12 November, Cadogan Hall – 2pm matinee
A sell-out triumph in previous years, this year’s Family Jazz All-Stars showcases the stunning vocals of Zoe Gilby in an unmissable and friendly show for all the family.
Zoe lends her captivating style to this fun-filled tribute to jazz singers past and present, sharing the stage with a line-up of highly accomplished jazz musicians.
Including songs from jazz down the years, as well as her distinctive take on popular classics, this promises to be perfect for all the family, from children to grandparents. So bring the whole clan and enjoy an energetic whistle-stop journey through jazz like no other!

  1. London? A local gig for these two - End of this month they're booked to play at the Roland Jazz Festival in Romania - hopefully before Article 50 is brought into play!

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.
