Global Goings-on

We are getting excited about a unique event coming to the Globe on the public holiday Monday 29 August. A fusion of Tango and Jazz, with dancing, listening, tea and tequila. Before that, we welcome another globetrotter back to the Globe - vocalist Claire Kelly plays a final gig before heading back to the far east.
On 26, 27, 28 August there is the first Ushaw Jazz Festival (near Durham). This excellent new event has been organised by local jazz genius Paul Edis, who was recently one of the tutors at our Summer Weekend Workshop. The festival features many of the musicians who have supported Jazz.Coop in various ways and so we have decided not to programme any jazz gigs at the Globe during the festival so there is no clash. (Our regular More Jam session, always held on the fourth Sunday of the month, 3-6pm, will go ahead as usual.) 
Claire Kelly & Pete Gilligan On Saturday 20 August 2016 there is classy jazz vocals and virtuoso piano at the Globe. Claire Kelly is a versatile singer from the North East of England. Currently performing around Thailand and Malaysia she has squeezed in a date for The Globe on her whistle-stop visit to the UK.… Read more.

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.

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.
