Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

Preview: The Return of Daniel John Martin

(Preview by Russell)

Born in Congleton, a childhood in Africa, student years in France, Daniel John Martin calls Paris home, an established figure on the capital's jazz scene. Manouche guitarists, Hot Club specialists, a spell touring with Didier Lockwood, violinist Martin has met and worked with the best. Later this month DJM, as he is known, will return to Bebop Spoken Here's heartland to play three concerts in as many days. 


DJM will play gigs in Newcastle, Durham and Hexham. The first date at the Jazz Co-op (www.jazz.coop) on Thursday 20 Feb reunites DJM with Mick Shoulder's Swing Manouche. Bandleader Shoulder is known primarily as a first call double bassist but on this mini tour he will demonstrate his not inconsiderable abilities as a guitarist alongside six-stringer Giles Strong with Ian Paterson handling double bass duties. The quartet will play a second gig on Friday 21 at Durham's Claypath Delicatessen (6:30pm, telephone 0191 340 7209) and DJM's whistle-stop tour concludes on Saturday evening (22 Feb) in the basement venue below Haslam's of Hallgate (art gallery) in Hexham. The Vault's ancient stone built cellar is likely to sell out therefore it's advisable to book in advance - 01434 603884. Three gigs, each one highly recommended.

Sorry, Mick! I know the gig is at Core Music, silly error, I can't explain it other than incompetence!
