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.

Saturday Night @ The Sage

The Drifters are in Hall One but for jazz fans the double bill in Hall Two is the place to be.
This double bill presents two of the UK's finest jazz trios both featuring percussionist Asaf Sirkis. John Law's Art of Sound trio, playing John’s compositions, (with Tom Farmer, bass, and Asaf Sirkis, drums and percussion) has been described as "a sublime trio… a band heading for great things" by The Guardian. Asaf Sirkis’s own trio generates a compelling intensity, propelled by “not only an inventive drummer but also a composer of rigour, with and surprising delicacy” (Mojo). Presented with Jazz North East.
£13.50.
