Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

Jazz in the Afternoon @ Cullercoats Crecent Club. Monday 30th August.

Brian Chester (keyboards & trombone), Iain McAulay (trombone, trumpet & vocals), Derek Fleck (clarinet & tenor saxophone), John Hallam (double bass & sousaphone) & Ollie Rillands (drums & vocals) + Teresa McMullen (?) (vocals), Roy Gibson (keyboards), Doris Fenn (banjolele), Laurence McBriarty (trombone) & Miles Watson (vocals)
Holiday Monday and the joint was jumpin'. So full was it that extra seats were brought through from the bar. From the Crescent Club's sea view windows, white horses were dancing to the North Sea horizon. Inside feets weren't failin' us with C Jam Blues as the opener, booted along by some meaty tenor fom Derek Fleck. A varied set list included Just a Little While to Stay Here to Dr.Jazz with Miles Watson dispensing the prescription to Monk's Straight No Chaser. There was some good three 'bone ensemble work courtesy of Chester, McAulay and McBriarty, John Hallam enjoyed it all and Ollie Rillands, excellent drummer that he is, treated one and all to a Jerry Lee Lewis vocal medley. A canny afternoon.
Russell.
