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.

Sue Ferris, Stuart Collingwood Trio @ The Cherry Tree

Sue Ferris (ten/flt); Stuart Collingwood (pno); Neil Harland (bs); Paul Smith (dms).
The trio got things rolling with Bye Bye Blackbird before Sue opened up with All The Things You Are - chorus upon chorus of fanciful flights. My starter was Bayonne Ham with Salsify, Poached Egg and Hollandaise and I too could wax lyrical over this delightful delicacy but rather than list all the things it is I'll merely say Très Magnifique!
All of Me bounced along nicely Sue once again cutting the mustard as did indeed the guys behind her although, of course, there wasn't any actual mustard on the menu. What was on offer though was the Bavette Steak-Frites with Bearnaise Sauce - a dish to die for!
A switch to flute for the multi-titled Theme From Black Orpheus (a.k.a. Carnival and A Day in the Life of a Fool) which over a bossa-nova rhythm was the perfect accompaniment to Poached Pear, Almond Gratin and Chocolate Sorbet. Yummy, Yummy this was both hot and cool.
The set finished with Sue back on tenor for Love Is Here To Stay - with such a combination of food and music I guess the Cherry Tree is here to stay.
Next Friday is the start of a four nights residency for singer Jo Harrop with the Paul Edis Trio.
