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".

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.

TONIGHT at the HIGHFIELD - RUTH LAMBERT TRIO

RUTH LAMBERT is tonight's (Sunday May 10,) star attraction at The HIGHFIELD HOTEL, East Rainton, County Durham. The down beat is at 8:00 pm and Ruth is one classy chanteuse. With PAUL EDIS on piano, ANDY CHAMPION, bass, sounds to me like you ought to be there.
And, if you are still in doubt, it is FREE!
Lance.

Is this a dumb question, but have any of the gigs been advertised in the listings of magazines & papers - I've never seen them in the Guardian Guide for example?

Good question - come in Paul Edis...
Apart from this site, Paul Bream gives all known gigs coverage and the Highfield management advertised in the Sunderland Echo as well as emailing interested parties. There was a good crowd for Tony Kofi and Julian Siegel. The problem as I see it is that folk are prepared to boogie down the A19 for a 'name' but not for a local band/artist.
