Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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".

COVID-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.

Sing, Sing, Sing.

The singers are out in force tonight across the region. That boisterous vocal extremist Sandi Russell is with the Paul Edis Trio at Hoochie Coochie. Up river at Blaydon Ruth Lambert struts her stuff with the Customs House Big Band whilst further upstream at Hexham Arts Centre Lindsay Hannon Plus will be doing their thing. At La Bodega Tapas Bar in Morpeth Jack Hamilton plays solo piano but there is, I'm told, usually some vocal input from April the owner.
However, if your tastes run towards the wordless then the Jazz North East presentation of Vole at The Bridge Hotel could be the one for you.
Tradsters are catered for by the Vieux Carré Jazzmen at The Millstone in South Gosforth or the Maine Street Jazzmen over in Sunniside in the Marquis of Granby.
No excuse for staying in tonight!
Full details in the RH column.

With such a plethora of gigs to chose from I have to go and pick today to get loaded down with a heavy cold so will miss out on tonight's gigs.
Anyone up to writing a review is most welcome to do so.
