Bebop Spoken There

Wayne Escoffery: "My philosophy is keeping one foot in the past and one foot in the future" - DownBeat March 2018.

Scott Bradlee: “When audiences hear it [Sweet Child O’ Mine] there’s a lightbulb moment when they recognise the song’s hook, even though it’s in a different context. They’re so used to hearing it one way that it causes some cognitive dissonance. If it’s a song they’ve disparaged in the past and they now find themselves liking it, that’s really interesting to me” DownBeat March 2018.

Redemption found in Empty Shop - August 3

(Photo from archives)
Durham correspondent Tony Eales reports a standing room only attendance at the Empty Shop for the return visit of Tyneside based quartet Redemption. An evening of original numbers and modern jazz standards entertained a crowd of students (yes, some stay on during the summer months) and regular jazz gig-goers. John Hall and co played their tune dedicated to Bebop Spoken Here’s editor – the one titled Free Lance, thus making make this ‘in absentia’ performance a contender for Gig of the Year!
The Steam Machine Brewing Company has established a summer-long ‘tap takeover’ at the Empty Shop and the next opportunity for jazz fans to sample the Newton Aycliffe brewery’s ‘product’ is on Sunday week (August 13) when Matt MacKellar’s Trio invites the dynamic Julija Jacenaite to sing a bluesy tune or two. It’s a four o’clock start, and the gig is heartily recommended.

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.
