Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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)

Tonight @ Hoochie Coochie

Redemption Jazz is a relatively new quartet formed by 4 guys with a varied musical pedigree going back to the 1960's - they are beginning to make waves. Comprising brothers Jim and John Hall on keys and sax respectively, Martin Wake, drums and Keith Tulip, bass, they received favourable feedback from last weeks gig at the Chilli and tonight will be an opportunity for BSH to check them out. I like the clips I've heard on their website - Monk, Coltrane and some originals - a post Blue Note sound well worth hearing live.
Lance.
Hoochie Coochie, 54 Pilgrim St., Newcastle. 8:00pm.

Hi BSH

Just thought that I should say that Redemption at the Hoochie Coochie were absolutely excellent tonight. Great Coltrane and suberb Corea- in particular Chameleon and a spellbinding multi tempo version of God bless the Child.

Great musicians-More please!

Haven't enjoyed myself so much at a gig in Newcastle since medieval times in the New Orleans Jazz Club at Forth Banks.
I would recommend anyone interested in BSH to go see them!!
