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)

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.

Jazz on BBC Radio and closer to home

The (cold) wind of change blows across Radio 3’s jazz output this holiday weekend. Jazz Record Requests has a new presenter (the excellent Alyn Shipton) as long-time host Geoffrey Smith moves over to the graveyard shift (midnight) to present a new weekly programme imaginatively titled Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz. 
Radio 2 visits the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, on Sunday Wogan (yes, Terry Wogan) gets in on the act and Gil Evans is remembered in this the centenary year of his birth. 
Radio 4 gives listeners ‘another chance to hear’ Tuesday’s broadcast documentary on Mahalia Jackson. Oh yes, Lickety Split (see LL’s Lit & Phil review) can be heard on Radio Tyneside tomorrow (Sunday, 5:00 pm). The schedule looks something like this:
SATURDAY
Conjuring Halie – Mahalia Jackson (Radio 4, 3:30 pm)
Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3, 4:30 pm)
Jamie Cullum – live from Cheltenham Jazz Festival (Radio 2, 4:00 pm)

melody Gardot did a great set, which I heard over here in France on Jamie mcullum. I wished I could have been there, and that I could hear Melody sing again. but there are no re broadcasts outside UK. 'Tant pis', as my french neighbours say.

The host of the Geordie Hour on Radio Tyneside is Gary Hogg from Cramlington. Gary is a regular at Ashington Jazz Club. Today I believe he will play a tracks from Lickety Split & Keith Stephens Hot Club Trio. (No doubt he will mention Keiths charity concert at Ashington next Friday)
