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)

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.

Tom Gilroy.

Whilst enjoying Gabi and co at Hoochie last night I met Tom Gilroy - a pianoman whose CV includes residencies at La Dolce Vita and Club 69 back in those "Get Carter" days when Newcastle had a thriving night club scene.
Actually, at Hoochie, that scene could be resurrected.... 
Tom was interesting to talk to and surely has a million memories of the local scene from back then to share. Must catch up with him again...
Lance.
PS: Review from gig will follow shortly..
