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.

First Newcastle JATP Concert.

Syd Watson has asked me about the first JATP concert to be held in Newcastle. Well Syd, I still have the program so here goes. May 7 1958 - City Hall Newcastle. Dill Jones Trio w. Dave Shepherd (clt). Lady Be Good. ----- Coleman Hawkins (ten), Sonny Stitt (alt/ten), Roy Eldridge (tpt), Lou Levy (pno), Herb Ellis (gtr), Max Bennett (bs), Gus Johnson (dms). Indian Summer, Talk of the Town. ----- Dizzy Gillespie (tpt), Stan Getz (ten), Lou Levy (pno), Ray Brown (bs), Gus Johnson (dms). Lover Come Back To Me, Laura. ----- Oscar Peterson (pno), Ray Brown (bs), Herb Ellis (gtr). C Jam Blues, Golden Striker. ----- Ella Fitzgerald (vcl) acc. Lou Levy, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, Gus Johnson. Too Close For Comfort, Midnight Sun, Lady is a Tramp, Just One of Those Things, St Louis Blues, Caravan. ----- There were also some instrumentals by the Eldridge, Gillespie, Peterson groups that my youthful ears didn't recognise. My abiding memory was that Stan Getz played a lot of squeaks and that Sonny Stitt was more impressive than either Getz or Hawkins. Hope that brings it all back for you Syd. Lance.
