Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Kings Reign in Rain

Those intrepid Kings of Rhythm from Jesmond West failed to have their spirits dampened by the Wallsend weather which was wet.
Despite the rain, poor acoustics and an audience that was slowly drowning in apathy, WJRK gave a workmanlike performance. Understandably, they concentrated on theoretical crowd-pleasers such as "Indiana" and "Doctor Jazz" rather than the less hackneyed and often more melodic numbers from their CDs. Mike Durham gave a solid lead and Brian Chester's trombone was as ribald as ever but Derek Fleck on clarinet seemed to be under-miked. This wasn't a problem for the rhythm section. Keith Stephens, banjo; Phil rutherford sousa; Mac Rae drums came across loud and clear.
I look forward to hearing them again in more compatible surroundings.
