Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)


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".


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.


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.

St Valentine's Day Double Diva Delight Tonight.

Tonight - St. Valentine's Day no less - has the Zoe Gilby Quintet as this week's "Splinter @ The Bridge" gig. Zoe will front her usual suspects in the form of Andy Champion (bs), Ric Brown (dms), Graeme Wilson (ten) and Mark Williams (gtr). Zoe starts doing it at 7:30/7:45 pm. -----
Down the road a'piece at the Bascule Bar, St Peter's Basin the Ruth Lambert Trio will also be wooing the Valentine Faction. With Ruth will be Paul Gamblin (gtr) and Paul Susans (bs).
This is going to be a tough choice. However, that mother of Invention Russell has pointed out that by judiciously throwing one's self down Dog Leap Stairs one could then catch the Link Bus along the Quayside to that part of the Tyne Riviera known as St Peter's Basin and thus grab a set from both girls.
