Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)

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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

Preview - Lucian Ban - Enescu re-imagined

I quote:
Downtown New York meets contemporary classical, as a stunning group of leading jazz improvisers present a daring re-imagining of the works of Romanian violinist and composer George Enescu.Led by expatriate Romanian pianist Lucian Ban, and featuring such iconic artists as revolutionary viola player Mat Maneri and ex-Miles Davis percussionist Badal Roy, the octet first unveiled this project at the George Enescu Festival in Bucharest, and subsequently played a New York date that appeared in many critics' 'Best of Year' lists for 2010. Now Jazz North East joins The Sage Gateshead to present one of only two UK performances (the other being at the London Jazz Festival).
Working at the edge of classical, jazz and downtown improv, the ensemble re-interprets Enescu scores that reveal uncanny harmonic relationships with the jazz tradition while still presenting new challenges to the improvisers. Pianist Uri Caine did something similar with the works of Mahler around a decade ago (and played a packed gig at Live Theatre), but this is a still more exciting and adventurous revelation.
The concert is in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute www.icr.ro

It will be interesting that's for sure - can't wait!

      Monday Nov., 21, Sage Gateshead. 8:00pm. £13/£7.
