Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (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".

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.

Tonight at the Cherry Tree

Tonight is a rather special night at the Cherry Tree Restaurant (9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle. 0191 2399924).
A return visit by the Alan Glen Trio.
There are few better trios than this and it galls me that, laid up and housebound with what seems like Galloping Malaria - of which there is no known cure - I will miss the flattened fifths and diminished sevenths laid down by Alan on piano ably abetted by John Pope on bass and David Carnegie on drums. Listening to CDs by Hampton Hawes and Bud Powell will go someway to alleviate the pain musically but Pot Noodles as opposed to the Cherry Tree's renowned Bavette Steak avec Frites?!
Pass the Codeine.
Lance.
