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".

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 Bridge Hotel

Tonight's Splinter @ The Bridge session looks good. Eyes Shut Tight are a Yorkshire band led by bassist Paul Baxter. Paul graduated from Leeds Music College which has a track record second to none and clips that I've heard of the trio (Richard Wetherell (keys); Kris Wright (kit)) indicate that this will be another success story for that particulas seat of musical learning.
It's contemporary and original but it's also accessible with keyboardist Wetherell having moments of delicate beauty.
8:00pm, Bridge Hotel, Castle Keep, Newcastle. £5.
