Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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)

Horn Dogs o/s Fenwick's, Northumberland Street. Saturday 25th.

Well, a welcome surpirse. The excellent Horn Dogs, led by ace trumpeter Graham Hardy, were to be found playing outside Fenwick's on Northumberland Street this morning. The main shopping street in town (the Toon's answer to Oxford Street) often has good buskers to be heard (has anyone heard the Jaco-style bass player? - he's really good) and today's Crescent City advocates made my day. I was out flyering (including one of Graham's forthcoming gigs!) and took a break to listen to the boys. It was the regular line-up with one very able dep - Dr. Steve Summers on tenor. You can hear the band in a double bill with Hardy's trio a week on Wednesday (October 6th) at the Elephant in Ashington and once again in Newcastle on Sunday 31st October at the Bridge Hotel as part of the on-going series of Splinter @ The Bridge gigs. Note to Graham: Horn Dogs Myspace page should have listed today's gig - Northumberland Street would have been packed with jazz fans!
