RIP Brian Sibbald

BRIAN SIBBALD, one of North Tyneside's best-known and respected bass players, passed away on Sunday 7 February 2016, aged 70 years. His love of music covered all the genres, but his real passion was for jazz, especially the classic jazz and blues of the early 20th century and the big band swing music of the 1930's - his knowledge of this music was encyclopaedic. 
The service and interment is at Whitley Bay Cemetery on Thursday 18th February at 10.30am. Sadly missed by his wife Shirley, daughter Rebecca, son-in-law Kevin, grandson Bobby, family and friends. 
RIP. 
Brian Bennett.

  1. So sorry to hear about Brian Sibbald. Nice bass player and a nice charming person to talk with, very knowledgeable.
    I just saw him in July last year, when I had a blow with Rendezvous Jazz at the Monkseaton Arms. He will be very much missed.

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.
