Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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".


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.

Bird evicted From Treehouse

The word on the lips of the breeze is that live music is to cease at Alnwick's Treehouse Restaurant once existing contracts have been honoured. The venue, a regular weekly jazz gig for duos, is the latest victim of a cost cutting exercise across the board not just here but nationwide.
Whilst I do feel a pang of guilt at never having been to the Treehouse it also raises the question as to whether music and menus are compatible. Does the one enhance or detract from the other?
