Bebop Spoken There

Howard Riley: “When I started out playing jazz back in the late 50s, early 60s, if you wanted a gig you had to learn some standards.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

Eric Harland: “I love swing and I’m always going to swing but I also know that you can take a hip-hop groove and improvise with that just like you would with a swing pattern.” – (Jazz Journal April 2017)

New Saltburn venue for The Jazz Lads

The ‘Jazz Lads’ are back at Saltburn Golf Club on Sunday 7th May and Sunday 4th June.
They are: Ray Dales, one of the finest sax players in the area, Jeremy McMurray, virtuoso keyboard player and leader of the Pocket Orchestra, Paul Smith, drummer exceptional and a grand master of his craft, highly talented guitarist Ian Bosworth, of both Tees Hot Club and Musicians Unlimited fame, and Adrian Beadnell, starting his career with Chris Rea in Saltburn more years ago than he cares to remember, on bass. 
Building on their successful Sunday evening at the Club on the 2nd April, where they were joined by guest guitarist Paul Donnelly, the lads are very much looking forward to playing another programme of exciting Jazz numbers to an appreciative audience on the 7th May and 4th June.

Tickets for future evenings can be bought at the door and cost £5.00.  The music starts at 8.00.

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.
