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.

Message From Mike Durham

Hi: just a reminder that the last jazz event of the season is on Saturday 18th June at 8.00pm, featuring the superb Lancastrian reedman John Hallam, backed by the Roly Veitch Quartet.
John plays lovely swinging clarinet, tenor and baritone sax and has a great liking for the classic 1930s repertoire of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Harry Warren, Jerome Kern, Rogers & Hammerstein and other great songsmiths of that vanished era. The backing trio of piano, bass, guitar and drums is made up of three of the region's best mainstream musicians, and the combination promises a very high-class and enjoyable evening. Tickets are £10 on the door or from 0191 285 6130
Trinity Jazz starts again after the Summer break on September 17th with a welcome return visit from trumpeter Rico Tomasso: if you don't have a copy of the September 2011-June 2012 brochure, pick one up on Saturday after the concert.
By the way, there will be twelve hours of free traditional jazz on offer at the Jazz Stage of the Mouth of the Tyne Festival (July 9th & 10th) from 12 noon to 6.00pm each day - Front Street, Tynemouth. Check line-up and band playing times at the Mouth of the Tyne website.
Best wishes for a great Summer!
Mike.
