Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".

Postage

11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).

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.

Remembering Chris

This weekend sees two events of major importance for local jazz enthusiasts.
On Sunday afternoon (1:00pm - 6:00pm) at the Corner House, Heaton, the long awaited tribute to the late Chris Yates - Remembering Chris - takes place.
No need to remind you of Chris' importance on the local jazz scene - as Secretary of Jazz North East for almost 40 years Chris was a familiar figure to both audience and player.
That life is being celebrated with a concert featuring a host of names both local and international. The musicians are giving there services free with the proceeds going to charities of Chris' choice - Amnesty International, UNICEF and the National Jazz Archive.
Details of the afternoon are as follows:
1.00pm: ALAN GLEN TRIO.
1.40pm: PAUL EDIS SEXTET.
2.20pm: STEVE WATERMAN, NEIL HARLAND,
ADAM SINCLAIR, ROLY VEITCH.
3.00pm: ALAN BARNES, GRAHAM HARDY, PAUL EDIS,
MICK SHOULDER, DAVID CARNEGIE.
3.40pm: GRAEME WILSON, ROLY VEITCH, NEIL HARLAND, SCOTT ADAIR.
4.20pm: TIM GARLAND, ANDY CHAMPION, ADRIAN TILBROOK.
5.00pm: ALAN BARNES, TIM GARLAND, STEVE WATERMAN,
PAUL EDIS, ANDY CHAMPION, ADRIAN TILBROOK.
Tickets £10.00 from J G Windows | 0191 232 1356 | or from the Corner House during pub hours.
Truly a musical gourmet's menu.
Today, Friday July 23, at the Literary & Philosophical Society, 23 Westgate Rd., Newcastle, the official book launch of Chris Yates' memoirs - Blue Horizons - takes place.
The event is free and takes the form of a talk by former Jazz North East committee member Alan Twelftree.
Alan had a long association with Jazz North East and the Newcastle Jazz Festivals in the 1970s. He also broadcast on Radio Newcastle and Metro Radio. His own memories should provide a fitting companion to Blue Horizons.
