Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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".

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.

Here There and Everywhere.

Truly a vintage night, tonight, with something for everyone so you pays your money and you makes your choice.
For discerning diners with an ear for piano jazz in a Buddist Monk mode (that's Bud Powell and Thelonious) that Stanley Steamer Harley Johnson plays solo at the Cherry Tree Restaurant in Jesmond.
Over at the Jazz Café on Newcastle's Pink Lane the Safe Sextet play their brand of hard bop whilst in North Shields, at the Saville Exchange, John Hallam is with the Roly Veitch Quartet.
Paradoxically, Mike Durham who is the guiding light behind the Saville's Jazz Program is himself performing at Gateshead Fell Cricket club with his West Jesmond Rhythm Kings.
Out in the sticks, the Paul Edis Sextet are at the Queens Hall, Hexham, and the TG Collective are at Hamsterley Village Hall.
That I had such a choice every night!
Lance.
