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.

Saville Exchange Gig Cancelled.

With great regret we have to inform you that Friday's concert with Six in a Bar has been cancelled due to the bad weather - three of the band (who come from Lancashire and West Yorkshire) are currently "snowed in" in the villages where they live, and on top of that one more has come down with the dreaded 'flu. With no prospects of an early thaw, and not wishing to present us with a band full of "deps", both the band and I thought cancellation the best thing. We'll try to re-schedule this concert at a later date: in the meantime, please stay tuned for an announcement from North Tyneside Council regarding arrangements for those of you who have pre-paid for tomorrow night. This is our first-ever cancellation in over seven years of presenting Jazz @ The Exchange, by the way.
Here's to John Hallam and the Roly Veitch Quartet on February 5th...... snow should be gone by then!
