Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

More on the NCRO @ Trinity Church

A sparkling Christmas tree, sparkling instruments and a sparkling performance!!
A packed programme included some brand new numbers. "Let me be the first" & "Red hot Mama" was followed by a nice clarinet solo by Steve Andrews in "Someday Sweetheart". "Paddling Madeline home" & "Washing dishes with my sweetie" included a bari sax solo and vocal from Jim McBriarty. Caroline Irwin sang "I'm a dreamer" then came "I'll never be the same" with a trio comprising banjo, violin and clarinet. Marilyn Monroe's "I wanna be loved by you" was next. The first half ended with "Kiss and make up", "Not on my list" and "Doing the new low down" as featured by Twiggy in the 60's film The Boyfriend.
After the interval "Putting on the Ritz", "Crazy Quilt" & "Only You" with Keith Stephen and Caroline. Next came "Charlie my boy", "Reindeer rag", "After you get what you want you don't want it" &"Varsity Rag" featuring Jim McBriarty. " You'll be surprised" with Caroline vocals - ending with "Make fun for you".
Newcomer Alan Marshall (sax & clt) fitted in well with the band for his first time performance. It was a good sized audience with some folks in the upstairs balcony. A lovely venue, good acoustics and overall a pleasant night out
