Bebop Spoken There

Ambrose Akinmusire: “I love teaching, and I love the exchange. And I’m starting to accept my role as a mentor. That sounds weird to say. But I can’t avoid the fact that there are younger musicians who are watching me.” – (Down Beat September 2017).

Mike Gibbs: “Rehearsals are a chance for players to learn my degree of vagueness.” – (Jazzwise September 2017).

American “Jazz Singin’ Super Babe” To Feature With Newcastle’s Strictly Smokin’ Big Band

Following their hugely successful 2015 gig with Anthony Strong, this year sees Strictly Smokin’ hosting Hailey Tuck at Hoochie Coochie on Sunday 18th September.
Born in Austin, Texas, and now based between London and Paris, Hailey Tuck was raised on a diet of 1930's jazz, vintage dresses and black & white movies. Her love of the 'old school' saw her move to France aged just 18 in search of ‘la vie en rose’.

Dressed straight out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, with a uniquely captivating voice that sits somewhere between Billie Holiday, Regina Spektor and Ella Fitzgerald, Hailey enchants her audience with classics such as ‘My Funny Valentine’, but also surprises with her unique take on tracks like The Zombies’ ‘Tell Him No’, Bob Dylan’s ‘Don’t Think Twice’ and ‘Sunday Morning’ by Maroon 5.
The pairing of this unique talent with Michael Lamb's Strictly Smokin', which prides itself on the versatility of its performance, is bound to lead to an amazing gig. Originally rooted in swing, but beyond comfortable performing ultra-contemporary material the band is perfectly suited to Hailey’s varied repertoire.
Since Hailey’s debut EP release in April 2014 she has performed over 40 shows around Europe and Asia including sell outs at Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Juu Jaab Festival and Umea Jazz Festival. Her sold out 4 shows at the legendary Duc Des Lombards in Paris was featured live on national radio station TSF. In the UK she has had airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music, and has supported Jamie Cullum at his Parisian album launch performance at the legendary theatre La Cigale.
“Hearing a powerhouse unit like this really is the most mind-blowing experience” Bebop Spoken Here (UK)
“The Strictly Smokin’ Big Band nailed it” Anthony Strong (#1 in iTunes US Jazz Charts)
“Without doubt, the very best big band operating in the North…” Hoochie Coochie (UK)

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.
