Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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".


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.

Jazz on Radio 3

Two in concert performances of interest to the north east (and beyond) jazz audience over the next few days. On Monday night (12 March) on Jazz on 3 (11:00 pm) there is a duet performance by pianist Pat Thomas and saxophonist Steve Williamson. The duo can be heard at this year's Gateshead International Jazz Festival with Orphy Robinson as Blacktop (Sunday 25 March). Twenty four hours earlier on Sunday 11 March on Jazz Line-Up three musicians soon to be heard at a Jazz North East promotion at the Lit & Phil (Kit Downes Quintet, 12 April) were recorded at King's Place, London. Kit Downes (piano & Hammond), James Maddren (drums) and cellist Lucy Railton perform with drummer and former Newcastle College music student Seb Rochford. Rochford won't be playing the Newcastle gig but it hardly matters as Maddren is a top class player in his own right. James Allsopp (reeds) and Calum Gourlay (bass) will be there on the night.
