Culture Magazine & Hannabiell/ Esquires are Going Home/ NCRO cancelled at Darlo.

The Journal - Tyneside's morning newspaper which appears on the news-stands about ten minutes before Tyneside's evening paper, the Chronicle - features a column interview with the iconic African, American, Jamaican Geordie bass trombonist, percussionist Hannabiell. The leader of Midnight Blue talks about her ipod playlist citing tracks by Bill Frisell, Trombone Shorty, Fred Wesley as well as a couple of selfie tracks.
Check it out here (page 17).
In other news - away from Culture - the Jazz Esquire's lunchtime stint at the Black Horse, Monkseaton, finishes today and next Wednesday they return to their old stomping ground, The Porthole by North Shields' ferry landing (1pm May 7.)
Not certain as to what's happening with the Friday session by Rendezvous Jazz at the Black Horse...
Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club have had to cancel the June 7 session owing to problems with the venue. They hope to re-book the New Century Ragtime Orchestra at a later date.

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.
