Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

An Invitation From Brian Bennett (OBE?)

Join us on the River Tyne for a 3 hour, full-river cruise to celebrate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee and enjoy a unique view of the Newcastle & Gateshead Quays, Bridges and changing vistas of the river all the way to the mouth of the Tyne. 
As part of this event, the VCJ are leading a 'Jubilee Parade' followed by more than 100 paraders along the Quayside prior to boarding the cruise boat - band and guests will assemble on the Quayside next to The Pitcher & Piano Bar at 11.45am -  small Union Jack hand flags are encouraged but not essential.
The Vieux Carre Jazzmen shall perform during the cruise and a hot meal will be served at 1.30pm. 
The date for your diary is Tuesday 5 June, 2012. Tickets are £25 which includes hot, home-made Pie, Peas & Mash – also the Millennium bridge will open for us to sail under so make sure you bring your camera. 
Our cruise boat is the 'LATIS' which has a spacious main deck, promenade deck and saloon bar that serves beers, wines and spirits. 
The cruise will set sail from Newcastle Quayside (adjacent to The Pitcher & Piano Bar) at 12.30pm prompt (boarding from 12 noon) arriving back at the Quayside at 3.30pm

Just an OBE? Pah!
Arise Sir Brian.
Mind you, any sub standard gigs and it might be subsequently taken away. Just ask poor old Fred.
