Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

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.

Robert Walser Reading. Friday July 15. 6:00pm, Culture lab on Site Arch 5, Forth Street, Newcastle, Tyne and Wear NE1 3PJ.

Short stories by the Swiss author Robert Walser (1878-1956) read by Gabriele Heller, Claire Webster Saaremets and Tim Bennett with contemporary compositions, inspired by Walsers Work. “From an adjoining building came the esteemed 58-year old poet, accompanied by the warden. I was struck by his childlike expression, red-flushed cheeks, blue eyes, and trim, golden mustache. He was already turning gray at the temple. His well-worn collar and necktie were set somewhat crookedly, his teeth not in the best condition. When Dr. Hinrichsen wanted him to button the top button of his vest, Robert rebelled: `No! The top button must remain open!"
Carl Seelig's memoir Wanderungen with Robert Walser. There will be drinks and nibbles and an open discussion about Robert Walsers work
The above, from respected jazz singer Gabby, suggests it could be of interest.
