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.

hi lance

ive been 3 times since it started 5weeks ago.

the jazz cafe jam is led by the irrepressible pete gilligan on keys with paul granger on double bass, young omid has bought kit along most weeks, mark williams has been strutting his high energy stuff using the infamous jazz cafe house guitar amp,sarah travener is on tenor, and lindsay hannon displays her eclectic vocal talents.

this lineup has been joined at times by an impressive horn section including stewart and fiona from budvivar, and chris finch and i have both stepped away from the piano to play tenor and trumpet respectively.
many other guest guitarists, pianists singers, a harmonica players rappers and drummers(including david carnegie last sunday) have got on the bandstand and contributed to what seems to me to be one of the coolest things happening on a sunday afternoon in newcastle.
it starts at around two thirty,
and ends when it ends (between half nine and twelve when ive been)

bring your instruments, bring your pals
