Jazz Hands Quintet - Black Orpheus

1 comment :

Continuing with the educational theme, albeit closer to home, Brent March co-leader of The Jazz Hands Quintet sent me this video of their version of Black Orpheus . All five are students on the Bmus course at Sage Gateshead and may be remembered from some appearances at the Jazz Café jams last year. They have made rapid advances as a group since then as this recording shows.
Full personnel is: Callum Mellis (trumpet); Brent March (guitar); Inês Gonçalves (keys); Jordan Maddison (bass guitar); Brad Davison (drums).
Who's to say that some of these musicians won't be playing in the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra in the future?

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.
