Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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 - Sunderland v Newcastle!

Tonight sees the start of the weekend's Great North Big Band Festival at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St. Peter's, Charles St., Sunderland.
Tonight it's BBC Big Band altoist - Paul Jones - and Musicians Unlimited tenorist - Mick Donnelly doing a Quintet and a Big Band set.
Tomorrow afternoon is the Youth and Open Big Band Competition with the winning bands playing again in the evening.
Sunday afternoon is a Jazz Workshop followed by the Schools Big Band Jazz Competition.
Full details in RH column.
However, just as Newcastle and Sunderland football teams are in opposition on Sunday, tonight, Friday March 2, Newcastle has some jazz opposition to the Sunderland gig.
I refer to the Paul Edis Sextet at the Lit and Phil.where they launch their new CD There Will Be Time  This is a cracking disc and the opportunity to hear it live (and buy) should be well worth the effort.
Plus afterwards - in the equivalent of extra time - you can hop over to the Jazz Café and catch the Safe Sextet! 
So Sunderland or Newcastle? The choice is yours.
Lance.
