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.

South Shields Customs

That fine organisation, the Customs House Big Band, are holding an open rehearsal at the New Crown Hotel on Tuesday 3rd February. Admission is free and gives listeners the opportunity to hear the band, warts and all, for nowt! Sounds like good value.
My informant, Miles Watson, tells me the band are doing two nights at the Customs House in March (24th & 25th) by which time the warts hopefully will have been dispensed with. There will, of course, be a break of approximately 24 hours between the two concerts to enable band and audience to eat, sleep and whatever. The guest artist will not be Robbie Williams or Brian Bennett. It will however, be Ruth Lambert. Her womanly warblings are ever welcome.
