Sun 4 Feb ENGINES ORCHESTRA feat. FEMI TEMOWO
The Engines Orchestra unites London’s most adventurous young classical, jazz, world and folk musicians in a community that works closely with other artists to push the boundaries and develop audiences for groundbreaking, new music. They work with composers from all genres, animators, filmmakers and dancers to create accessible ways into challenging environments. 

For this show they have teamed up with Nigerian-born guitarist Femi Temowo to perform music from his critically acclaimed 3rd solo release The Music is the Feeling. Known for his work with artists like Amy Winehouse, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Roots and Soweto Kinch to name a few, Temowo's music explores a unique blend of afro, jazz and folk. 
His collaboration with Engines Orchestra results in a beautiful tapestry of head nodding grooves, contemplative melodies and heartfelt harmony delivered with a unique flair and a contagious feel-good mood that carries every audience along with them.
Line up: Phil Meadows (Conductor/Orchestrator), Femi Temowo (guitar), Jez Franks (guitar), Andy Champion (double bass), Dave Ingamells (drums), Emily Davis, Minn Majoe (violins), Matt Maguire (viola), Zosia Jagodzinska (cello), Brass and Winds TBC,

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.

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.
