Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

On The Outside Festival. Sunday Oct. 11 part 2.

A fifth and final evening session was to come but first it was time for a quick pint in the pub across the road.
Seven o'clock approached and it was time to return to Gateshead's most welcoming Old Town Hall for the finale which opened with Marilyn Crispell performing solo before being joined by Raymond Macdonald for a short duo piece.
The remainder of the programme was a cornucopia of delights. The sets, programmed by the musicians themselves, took the form of a series of brief duo and trio encounters producing highlight upon highlight. The last word, musically speaking, went to Marilyn Crispell and Chad Taylor. The perfect ending. The events of the three days were captured on canvas by Gina Southgate, Artist in Residence. Gina worked unstintingly alongside the musicians producing a series of paintings capturing the very essence of the world that is free jazz. Her work will be exhibited at Newcastle Arts Centre (Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne) from Saturday 24th October. All are welcome to attend the opening at 6.00.p.m. on the evening of 24th October. An alternative take on the events can be viewed online at www.musicfilmbroth.com . Many thanks to Mark for making available this invaluable resource. Thanks to Northern Rock Foundation for making a generous award, without which On the Outside would not be possible. Finally, many thanks to Sue Hurrell and collegues at Gateshead Arts & Libraries assisted by Charlie, Chris and countless others for making it all happen at such a great venue. Russell
