Makes it all worth while!

(Daryl Sherman)
I'll be in England next week until Jan 22. Mostly for friend's birthday event but have a few gigs including Swansea and also this:
Digby Fairweather has been dedicating himself to launching this fairly new Jazz Centre in Southend. He visited NYC a few months ago and when I told him I'd be over in January...voila! He fixed up a concert on Friday evening and then next day as you'll see. I look forward to seeing the sea as well as lovely folks who live there.
All best to you, Lance, dearest and many thanks for your kind, caring support.

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.
