Bebop Spoken There

Steve Race: "The personnel is different, notably in the inclusion of Ben Webster, always, to my mind, a rather half-hearted tenor player" - - New Musical Express, 16-9-1949.

Zoë talks, Logan listens

Colin Muirhead's Jazz on the Tyne online radio programme features music by - and conversation with - musicians based in the region. A recent edition focussed on APPJAG award-winner Zoë Gilby. In these lockdown times vocalist/composer/lyricist Zoë wasn't able to meet up with Colin at the station's Perth Green base, opting instead to chat over the telephone. 

Zoë singing No More Blues set the ball rolling and with Logan listening intently (Logan is the family pet lurcher) topics of conversation ranged from the strange times in which we currently live (and the potential online performance opportunities arising) to Aurora (a forthcoming Tom Harrell-inspired project), Zoë's voice and bass duo with Andy Champion and a whole lot more. 


Hive Radio (www.capne.org) is based in Jarrow, South Tyneside. Colin's programme goes out at noon on a Saturday with a repeat the following Wednesday at 9:00pm and, just in case you miss either, you can hear the same show the following week at the same times. If you didn't catch Zoë on the programme listen again at www.mixcloud.com and visit her website - www.zoegilby.co.uk - for further details of how to become a Patreon subscriber to Zoë and Andy's online Living Room Gig sessions.
