Bebop Spoken There

Bob Dawbarn (review of Joe Harriott's LP 'Free Form'): "Both horns scream and roar away, Keane at times doing a pretty fair imitation of an elephant angry with its keeper." - (Melody Maker, December 16, 1961).

Steve Race: "The non-musician critic knows how music ought to sound. But he cannot possibly know how it feels to create it. He is in the position of the marriage guidance counsellor who has never been married." – (Jazz News, June 6th 1962).

Saturday Night @ The Globe - a Must Be There Occasion!


Saturday 18th February, 8pm
🎟 £11/£9 from www.strictly-smokin.co.uk

📍Jazz.Coop: The Globe, 11 Railway Street, Newcastle, NE4 7AD
Special one-off gig with jazz trumpeter Bruce Adams as guest soloist with Strictly Smokin' Big Band. Not only is Bruce one of the jazz scene’s most dramatic and stimulating performers, he is also a tremendously affable companion. A concert fronted by the Glaswegian is a happy and riotous event. Adams has been a regular jazz poll-winner, and with his spectacular range and power on trumpet, he has been in demand as a lead, and jazz man for decades.    Bruce has often worked as a special guest soloist with both the Scottish Radio Orchestra and the BBC Big Band, so this gig with Strictly Smokin' will be something else: big band + big Bruce... watch out!

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.
