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.

...not at The Chilli anyhow. As well as Dave Weisser and the Take It to The Bridge gang it is also that night in the month when the ALAN GLEN TRIO make an appearance. The trio, Alan (piano), John Pope (bass) and David Carnegie (drums) are as good a trio as you will find in a long night's bop. Sheer class! The support by the resident TAKE IT TO THE BRIDGE outfit is also PDG so tell me I'm dreaming when I say it's only £1 to get in.
If you do decide to literally take it to The Bridge (Hotel that is) DUOLOGY + 2 present an intriguing meeting of two great cities - New York and Sheffield. From 'The Apple', Ted Daniel (trumpet) and Michael Marcus (clarinet) whilst John Jasnoch (guitar and oud) and Charlie Collins (percussion) are the boys from Sheffield. This is a JNE On The Outside promotion.
Kick off 8:30 but get there soon as parking can be a problem as I found out last night!
£7/£4 for this one.
Down at the Causeway near Hartlepool, RUTH LAMBERT struts with the JEREMY McMURRAY QUARTET. If you live down that way, and some people do, this will be unmissable.
AND IT's FREE! Think I'll move to Hartlepool - then again...
New Orleansy types can probably get their fix at Springwell Village Hall where the RAE BROTHERS NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND usually play on Wednesdays. Ring to check (number in "Things To Come" box in side panel.)
There is also a whisper about a new session/workshop at The Swan, Heworth. I await more info on this one. The whisper has become LOUDER. The band is Ps Jazz and they countdown from 7 pm - 9 pm most Wednesdays. Further details from Mike Diggle or
