Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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.

Flashmob to play Jazz Café

Flashmob - paradoxically a quartet - are to appear at Newcastle's Jazz Café on Wednesday Nov. 9.
This is part of a Jazz Services sponsored tour and the Newcastle gig came up after a date elsewhere fell through.
The band comprises Ryan Williams (guitar); Rory Simmons (trumpet); Will Collier (bass) and Nick Smalley (drums).
Williams, in the forefront of the picture is a Guildhall graduate, and he described the bands music to me as 'straight ahead jazz with some rock and contemporary elements also in the mix.'
Listen to Chetniks. Chetniks, I'm led to understand were a Serbian paramilitary movement however, listening to Simmons' lyrical trumpet leads me to believe another Chet may have been a bigger influence!
As of yet times and door price have yet to be announced - watch this space.
Lance.
