At the North Shields Jazz Band Ball!

(Preview by Russell)
Jazz at the Exchange! It’s like old times. Mike Durham’s series of classic jazz concerts at the then Saville Exchange on Howard Street in North Shields set the standard and now, in 2016, the rejuvenated Exchange venue is once again to host jazz. On Saturday, October 22, three of the region’s top bands unite to present a triple bill of jazz and blues. The hall and its raked seats are as before with cabaret style seating in front of the stage. The jazz starts at seven o’clock with the now legendary Rae Brothers. Mac and Dave know their Bolden from their Beiderbecke, steeped in the jazz of New Orleans. A jumpin’ blues session with Brian Lynham’s No Time for Jive follows at 8:15, and to round off the evening, Maureen Hall’s Rendezvous Jazz take to the stage at nine thirty.
The entertainment is scheduled to finish at 10:30, perhaps a shade later if you demand an encore! The Exchange is a matter of five minutes’ walk from North Shields Metro Station. Admission is £10.00. (seating at a table) and £8.50. if you prefer to sit in the raked seating to the rear of the hall. Give it a try, if you make it a success, you never know, jazz at the Exchange could once more be a regular evening gig at the coast.

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 them all 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.

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.
