Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (DownBeat 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".


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.


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.

Darlington's Impressive Swan Song or the Second Coming?

Despite reports of the closure of Darlington Arts Centre being mooted in the media they have announced the following list of jazz events for 2011.
Fri 21 January 8pm Josephine Davies Quintet. Fri 4 February 8pm Stan Tracey Trio. Wed 23 February 8pm Julian Smith Runner up in 2009's Britain's Got Talent Fri 4 March 8pm Osian Roberts/Steve Fishwick Quintet. Fri 1 April 8pm Robert Fowler Quartet. Fri 6 May 8pm Dave Barry.
A listing any out of town promoter would be proud of.
Could it be the reports of its demise being greatly exagerrated or are these bookings of longstanding being honoured?
