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".


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.

John Warren, leader of the Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra, has pointed out some important details missing from the published flyer of the band's forthcoming concert at Sunderland Campus on March 8.
It should include the following:
Issie Barratt and the Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra featuring her commissioned piece "Noneffency" and other compositions by herself and John Warren. with Steve Waterman as guest soloist.
This is, in effect, the same concert - plus Steve Waterman - that I and others raved about in November last year when the band played the Georgian Theatre in Stockton. Click here for previous review.
Don't miss this one - they don't come any better.
In the meantime, as an appetiser, look in on "Splinter" - the VOTNJO 'chips off the old block' small group - at Corner House on Thursday Mar 5. 8.00 pm.
