Cat Appeal


Ace trombone player Don Fairley posted this sad, emotional, item on Facebook:
I have a dilemma. Due to my overall health problems, I am soon to be moving to an assisted living home in North Gosforth. Unfortunately, There is a 'no pets' ruling which means that I cannot take my beloved cat, Mitzi, with me. I must, therefore, find a good home for her. She is mature at around 10 years old, beautifully well behaved and very easy to live with. She has been a delightful companion for over 9 years, in excellent health while in my care. Is there anyone who is looking for a wonderful mature pet to love and cherish?
If you know of anyone suitable, please leave a message. Thank you.

Don, your trombone skills are undisputed but this puts you above JJ, Kai, Teagarden and any other slideman in the world as a person.
So, you cats out there please help Don find a home for Mitzi.
Lance (and Daphne).
PS: Daphne says, "You ain't bringing none of your fancy she-cats into my house."

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.
