Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

Mama Does Allow at Ashington

Further to my previous post, site visitors will be aware that Ashington Jazz Club has been looking for a new base after 15 yrs at the Queens, Guide Post.
The good news is that they now have a new venue; upstairs in The Elephant Public House, Newbiggin Road, Ashington tel. 01670 814157. Most people know where it is; in actual fact, as the North Seaton Hotel, it was where the club began in the 1980s and, because it's actually in Ashington, it is hoped that it may attract a bigger audience.
New organiser John Taylor informs me that the first gig is on Wednesday 3rd Dec and features the Maine Street Jazzmen. Starts at 8.30 pm.
John is planning to present bands on a monthly basis.
