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.

Tonight Schmazz @ The Cluny - Kairos 4tet/Big Band @ Ryton/1954 Band @ Customs House

Tonight looks good at the Cluny for the latest Schmazz gig. The Kairos4tet are more accessible than some of the Schmazz offerings and I personally am looking forward to hearing them live. If you're not sure, check them out on MySpace. Click here. Listen to Russell's Resurgence. I don't think this refers to our boy Russell as, as far as I know, he resurged long ago. 8:30 pm.
The Customs House Big Band with Ruth Lambert are charitying at Ryton Comp. School in aid of MS. 7:30 pm £5.
At the Customs House itself in South Shields, the 1954 Band pay tribute to Ken Colyer and Chris Barber.
7:30 is the time to stomp off and it's £10 (£9 conc.) there is also a meal deal at £19 which gives you two food courses plus the concert.
