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.

Counting Down to The Sage...

The adrenalin is mounting, the heart beating faster, there is a sense of occasion - The Sage Gateshead International Jazz Festival is almost upon us.
This year, as indeed every year, it is a mixture of the familiar, the unknown and the tantalisingly intriguing mix that may or may not work but that you just have to see even if it's just to say "I was there!"
Not that their is much room for failure - it has been carefully worked out and I think that, after the final concert - whether it be Cleo or the Gasgow Improvisers - there will be few who won't be counting the days until next year!
So come on "Blondie" show us your jazz chops!
The Seventh Sage Gateshead International Jazz Festival runs from Friday March 25 to Sunday March 27. Full program here.
