Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/July 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.

Wednesday Night @ The Hot Club(s)

One thing is sure - the spirit of Django lives on in the North East. On Wednesday there are TWO hot club style bands performing in the area - I wonder if there are as many in, say, Toulouse?
Up at Ashington the KEITH STEPHEN'S HOT CLUB TRIO with Caroline Irwin, Roly Veitch and Bruce Rollo will be laying down their take on gypsy jazz in the Elephant Pub - home of the Ashington Jazz Club who, celebrate 25 years of bringing jazz to that part of Northumberland.
Meanwhile, in Heaton, at the home of Bebop - the Chilli - Take it to the Bridge diversify with a set by the HOT DRAGONS. We heard a sample of the Dragons in last weeks jam but tonight is the complete McCoy with Judith on violin, Willie Angus and Matt on guitars and an as yet unnamed bass player.
Seems like there is no shortage of hot clubbery at the moment.
I wonder if DJANGOLOGY are playing anywhere on Wednesday?
