CD Review: Postmodern Jukebox - The New Classics

An essential item for those who caught the phenomenon that is Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox on their recent UK tour which ended at Southend on March 14, calling in at Sage Gateshead on February 18 with the bonus of an impromptu apres show jam at the Prohibiton Bar which, even at this early date, is fast becoming the stuff of legend. In 10 years time, I guarantee there will be at least several hundred northeasterners who will swear they were present at the tiny Pro Bar on that memorable evening!
However, if you were at neither concert nor jam in person or in your dreams then this disc is no longer an essential - it is now an absolute must!

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.

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 all of them 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.
