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".


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.

Keith Nichols is Coming To a Town (or two)

Just a reminder that the wonderful ragtime and stride pianist Professor Keith Nichols will be appearing at the Saville Exchange, North Shields this Thursday (September16th) at 8.00pm with the West Jesmond Rhythm Kings. Again, please note it's Thursday, not our usual Friday, as this was the only night we could grab Keith on his travels. Also, in response to many requests, we will feature more of Keith's sparkling solo piano in this concert, as well as numbers with the WJRK. Keith first guested with the band at the High Point Hotel, Whitley Bay, back in 1990, the first of many such happy musical encounters; so we thought it would be fun to recreate that very special evening, playing most of the tunes we played on that long-ago night. The band on Thursday will be Mike Durham, trumpet; Derek Fleck, reeds; Brian Chester, trombone; Keith Stephen, banjo/guitar; Phil Rutherford, sousaphone and Pete Soulsby, drums. Hope to see you there! Mike.
For those who have an insatiable appetite for Professer Nichols he also struts his stuff on the Southside at South Shields where he appears with John Crocker at The Customs House for 'An Evening With Fats Waller' on Tuesday Sept 21, 7:30pm.
