Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Bill Evans: "A composer writes something, and an orchestra interprets it--he spends maybe six months writing 10 minutes of music, but a jazz musician spends 10 minutes of playing 10 minutes of music, and he performs it himself". - (Jazz Monthly July1960).

Live from ronnie scott's: The Bad Plus. Live stream - Thursday 27th July @ 8.15pm (BST)

Continuing its commitment to providing a worldwide audience the opportunity to experience world class jazz and exclusive shows through its programme of live video streaming, Ronnie Scott’s will live-stream the final night of The Bad Plus this Thursday.
The Bad Plus bend the rules in their own way, drawing on classical, rock and jazz to create their own febrile sound that is as invigorating now as it was when they released their eponymous debut album in 2001.
With their covers of material from Aphex Twin to Blondie, and Nirvana to Yes, they helped redefine the possibilities of what a piano trio could do and were one of the first bands to open up jazz to a younger, hipper audience, helping pave the way for the new wave of piano-trios such as Michael Wollny Trio and GoGo Penguin.
The band have been performing together as a unit since 1990 without the lineup changing, so it was with shock that in April this year the band announced that pianist Orrin Evans would replace founding member Ethan Iverson in a new chapter of the band in January 2018.  Quite possibly, this presents the last opportunity ever to see the original Bad Plus in an intimate UK club setting.  Expect material from last year’s release, ‘It’s Hard ‘featuring material from Prince, Kraftwerk, Johnny Cash and Ornette Coleman, alongside their own hard-hitting originals.
Line Up: Reid Anderson (bass), David King (drums) and Ethan Iverson (piano)
Available to watch via RonnieScott’s.co.uk Facebook Live, YouTube Live.

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.
