Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

Jumping in Jesmond, Hot at Heaton

Tonight the Cherry Tree Restaurant in Jesmond welcomes back jazz/blues singer Mo Scott with the Stu Collingwood Trio - Stu on piano, Neil Harland, bass and Lloyd Howell drums. It was a great session last time round so look for some tastful standards and some belting blues with solid support from the trio and some more fine piano from Stu this time round. All this and the Hautiest Cuisine this side of Montmartre.

Over on the other side of Route 1058, at the Corner House, Heaton, the Vieux Carré Jazzmen play their own brand of New Orleans Jazz. The Vieux Carré have been resident at the Corner House since Buddy Bolden was a boy which says much for their popularity.
