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.

New Out of Town Venue.

Kirkharle Coffee House, just off the A696 Jedburgh Road some 20 miles outside of Newcastle are launching Jazz on a Summer's Evening on Friday July 22 with two 45 minute sets from Lindsay Hannon (vcl); Alan Law (pno); and John Pope (bs).
Entry is free and real ales from Wylam Brewery will be on sale.
Pity you have to drive to get there as I don't imagine there's a bus every ten minutes.
When I was younger and fitter I used to cycle to Kirkharle and beyond. Alas...
