Body and Soul @ Dormans Jazz Club Middlesbrough - May 3

Richie Emmerson (tenor sax) Kevin Eland (trumpet) Rick Laughlin (keys & synthesizer) Keith Peberdy (bass) and Stuie Ellerton (drums).
The Quintet, comprising of local musicians,  maintained the high standards of guest bands at Dormans Jazz Club with an impressive performance, starting the evening with Wes Montgomery's Road Song followed by Good Bait and a fine version of a favourite one of mine Freddie Hubbard's Up Jumped Spring. The ballad, Young and Foolish, featured  Kevin showing his great skill on flugelhorn. After playing Speak Low bebop style, the first half was finished off with a very moving Chuck Mangione number Hill Where The Lord Hides with great solos from all of the band. Cantaloupe Island started the second half off in style and then a fast John Coltrane blues Mr.PC.
Richie on tenor sax was featured in a beautiful My Funny Valentine with Rick demonstrating his talent on keys and synthesizer before the band finished the night with The Hustler. It was a pleasure for the audience to be treated to an evening of this fine selection of Jazz numbers played by Body and Soul helping to keep the Jazz night going at Dormans Club.

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.
