Man Overboard on Radio 3 Thursday Sept. 5

Hot Clubbers, Man Overboard can be heard on Radio 3 this Thursday at 4:30pm. Readers may well remember I was knocked out by their recent CD All Hands on Deck - see review. Imagine Le Quintette de le Hot Club meeting the Benny Goodman Sextet and you get an idea of what to expect. Add  some period vocals and you have un melange par excellence - excuse moi francais!
Jean-Marie Fagon played in a Sunderland band - The Suspects before escaping.
Bryn Terfel is also on the program but that's his/their problem.
Check out here.
CD launch at King's Place on Sept. 14.

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.
