Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".

Postage

11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).

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 @ The Cherry Tree

There is a treat in store for diners at the Cherry Tree Restaurant (9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond tel 0191 2399924) tonight. No I'm not referring to the superb menu which is a rare treat in itself but to the Gerry Richardson Quartet (Gerry Richardson piano and vocals, Garry Linsley tenor sax, Neil Harland Bass, Paul Smith drums).
What makes this rather special is the opportunity to hear Gerry on piano rather than his beloved Hammond and to experience the all too rarely heard - in these parts - Garry Linsley on tenor along with two of the finest rhythm guys in Neil Harland and Paul Smith.
Like the food - the music is a mouth-watering prospect.
7:30pm or thereabouts.
Lance
