Duke Ellington's Sacred Concert Resurrected

There will be two performances this weekend of Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concert by Sage Gateshead's youth ensembles Jambone and Quay Voices. For some of you, this may be a chance to recall the magnificent performances of this work by the late Stan Tracey and his Orchestra at Durham Cathedral in the early nineties. If you weren't able to be there then this is a rare occasion to hear this music revisited.
If you were there, I'm sure you'll be interested in hearing it again.
On Saturday afternoon at 1.00pm Jambone and Quay Voices will be performing this Concert under the leadership of Paul Edis, alongside solo vocalist Zoe Gilby and saxophonist Matt Anderson in the beautiful surroundings of Ushaw College. They will also perform this concert in Sage One on Sunday 16th July at 7pm.
Brian E.
Tickets for the Ushaw concert are £5 and available from: 
The Sage One concert is free but ticketed. Booking details can be found at:

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.
