Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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.

It's Xmas! Tomorrow (Wednesday Dec. 23) you can Carouse at Culler, Party at the Porthole, Chill-out at the Chilli

With at least 3 jazz parties tomorrow Xmas is well and truly upon us. In the afternoon, those party animals the Vieux Carré Jazzmen are skateboarding down to the Crescent Club in Cullercoats for their latest piss-up. Folk legend Johnny Handle, not to be confused with Friedrich Handel who is dead, is on piano and, as per Monday, I'm sure there will be an abundance of food on the pool table.
Up river at the Porthole Laurie Brown's mainstream men will be keeping the flag flying or should it be swinging? most certainly yes.
In the evening, Budvivar are the guests at Dave Weisser's "Take it to the Bridge" session in the Chilli on Chillingham Road, Heaton. Expect some sitting in from Harley "Thelonious" Johnson who helped Budvivar out at the weekend when Chris Finch was indisposed.
I'll happily fore-go my Acker Spelk's for this one. What am I saying?
See you there or there or there.
Lance.
PS: If you live at Eighton Banks, where the air is rarified, the Maine Street Jazzmen with Olive will come a-wassailing at the Lambton Arms around 1:00 pm providing they get up Sheriff Hill. I should point out that Sheriff Hill is a steep hill and not a member of the constabulary.
PPS: The Maine Street are also doing it at Rosie Malone's on Xmas Eve lunchtime - bring on the mince pies and the mulled brown ale.
