Bebop Spoken There

John Tynan: "Go ahead, call me reactionary. I happen to object to the musical nonsense being peddled in the name of jazz by John Coltrane and his acolyte Eric Dolphy." - (Downbeat November 22, 1961).

-----

McCoy Tyner: "If anyone want to know how the three of us - Elvin, Jimmy and me - felt about John [Coltrane], listen to the music and you can hear the love and respect we had for each other. The music can really speak more than any of us." - (Melody Maker, August 19, 1967).

Cécile Mclorin Salvant live web stream from Ronnie Scott's Tonight May 28 - 9pm (BST)!!!

Last July, Ronnie Scott’s took a concert from jazz legend Wynton Marsalis to a World-Wide audience with their debut live-stream in association with The Guardian newspaper. The broadcast was a huge success with over 20,000 people tuning into watch the jazz great’s massively over-subscribed London show. Now TONIGHT Ronnie’s are delighted to announce their second live-stream featuring rising star jazz vocal great Cécile McLorin Salvant.
Her full performance on Wed 28th May is to be broadcast live to a global audience.  Thanks to the power of the internet and a ground breaking partnership with Panasonic, a world-wide audience will be given an unparalleled opportunity to experience the famed ambience of one of the world’s most iconic venues, swinging to one of jazz’s most iconic stars, all in stunning HD.
Tickets for her show sold out weeks ago primarily to club members, so, with demand for tickets to see the feted singer far out-stripping availability, Ronnie Scott’s are delighted to give this rare opportunity to those unable to secure tickets to enjoy the music and take a sneak peak inside one of the world’s most iconic venues.
As expected from Ronnie Scott’s the technical set-up will be of high end, with a state -of-the art multi camera AV set-up alongside a broadcast and recording studio installed in the historic Frith Street venue. The broadcast will be shot using discreetly positioned Panasonic integrated remote video cameras and at least one handheld (the same used by the BBC for HD recording).  Meanwhile the club’s AV team will mix the audio/visual stream live, broadcasting in-the-moment  vivid high definition images onto screens and into home across the globe.  This remarkably sophisticated multi-camera set up – undoubtedly one of the best in the world for a club of this size -  allows low-light filming of multiple positions giving viewers a genuine impression of being amidst the live audience and a real feeling for the intimate atmosphere of one of the world’s greatest jazz clubs - all without detracting from the experience of those lucky enough to have a ticket to the show.
Access to the broadcast is free.
Viewers will simply need to log onto the club’s website www.ronniescotts.co.uk at 9pm BST on Wednesday 28th May.

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.
