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.

Tonight @ The Bridge and elsewhere.

Tonight promises to be a special and at the same time a rather sad night. Special inasmuch as we have Noel Dennis on trumpet and flugel alongside Graeme Wilson on tenor backed by Paul Edis (keys), Andy Champion (bass) and Adrian Tilbrook (drums).
The program is billed as a tribute to Miles Davis and hopefully will be centred around that glorious period from say 1953 - 1969 when Miles made some of most iconic recordings in jazz.
So where, I hear you ask, does the sadness come in?
Well Noel is leaving the north-east to take up a position in Scotland and, whilst we wish him all the best, his departure will leave a gap in the local brass scene.
Which prompts me to say lets all turn out and give him a party night to remember. (Bridge Hotel, Castle Garth, Newcastle. 8:00pm. £5.)
Lance.
PS: Prior to the gig you could start off at the Central Bar at the other end of the High Level Bridge and catch the MO SCOTT BAND (4pm-6pm free.) Then leg it back over the bridge to the Jazz Café on Pink Lane for the jam session before going to the Bridge Hotel. That way your miles will be rewarded with Miles.
If however you're more into soul and funk then Hoochie Coochie offer the Teapad Orchestra for free!.
