Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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 Chilli - MONK LIVES!

The HARLEY JOHNSON TRIO pay tribute to Thelonious Monk with a special one hour set at the Chillingham tonight. With Eric Stutt (dms) and Jim Crinson (bs) it looks like being a 'gasser' if you'll excuse my archaic expression.
Harley, one week short of his eighteenth birthday, tells me the trio will be augmented by Paul Gowland on tenor and resident maitre d', Dave Weisser, on trumpet and vocals.
Like wow!
The gig kicks off around 8:00 pm with Monastic activities commencing around nine (should be midnight!).
With gigs like tonight's 2 (3) I imagine 100s of jazzers from York heading up to Newcastle whilst the Newcastle jazzers head down to York. Perhaps they'll collide halfway and end up at Jeremy McMurray's gig at The Causeway near Hartlepool!
Lance.
