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".


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.

Sunday Specials

Pivotal figure in today's offerings is ANDY CHAMPION. His intended, ZOE GILBY, is the extra-special dessert at Fenwicks' Tivoli Restaurant on Northumberland St, Newcastle and no doubt Andy will be to hand with bass fiddle at the ready. Mouth-watering.
In the evening Andy moves into deeper waters as part of SPELK which is, in turn, part of the SPLINTER at the Bridge Hotel sessions.
Spelk (Chris Sharkey (gtr/electronics), Andy Champion (bs) and Adrian Tilbrook (dms)) along with the MATHEW BOURNE - CHRISTOPHE de BEZENEC keyboard and sax duo are the follow-up to last weeks well-attended inaugural Sunday night session.
Hopefully the weather won't be a deterrent.
