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.

Calling Signals + MacDonald & Stakenas @ The Bridge Hotel.

Tonight we were spoilt for choice. Alison Moyet at The Sage, Horn Dogs at the Tyneside Irish Centre, Bob Caswell at Blaydon or Calling Signals + MacDonald and Stakenas at The Bridge.
Having recently re-joined the Jazz North East Committee I felt duty-bound to attend the latter event.
Hopefully, Russell will give us his take on the gig as it was totally beyond my comprehension.
If it hadn't been for the audience sitting looking profound and deadly serious I'd have thought it was a comedy act.
The irony of it is that there were brief flashes that indicated these guys could really play. Unfortunately those brief flashes were rarely executed simultaneously ('executed' how strangely appropriate that word seems...)
No, I'm afraid this parade has passed me by - does anyone have the number for the Jazz Police?
