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".

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.

Gig of the Year - so far.

As the year draws to a close I'm struck by the diversity of the bands nominated in our Gig of the Year feature. So much so that no one gig is a clear leader which just goes to show that our local promoters are providing a wide and varied program.
Those gigs which have got the slight edge are Greg Abate, The Paul Booth Organ Trio - both at the Corner House - The Tomasso Starace Quartet at The Chilli and Vasilis Xenopoulos at Blaydon.
Still time to make your own choices if you haven't already done so.
Lance.
