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.

Scarborough Jazz Festival

The full Scarborough Jazz Festival Brochure is now available and this - the tenth - looks to be a good one.
Keep the weekend of Sept. 28-30 free it's a must be there event.
Compered as ever by Alan Barnes the list of performers include Claire Martin, Martin Taylor, NYJO, Abram Wilson, Gareth Williams, Darius Brubeck, Matt Wates, Tim Garland, Sarah Ellen Hughes' Sector 7, to name but a few.
In between sets, in the bar, the Jim Birkett Trio will be present with perhaps a guest or two sitting in. Possibly because of the informality of these sessions guitarist Birkett has dropped James in favour of Jim which augurs well for some nice swinging relaxed jazz guitar.
Once again organiser Mike Gordon has delivered the goods all it needs now is for folks to buy tickets which they can do by following this link.
