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".

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.
