Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

New Baltic Exhibition.

Tell me I've gone mad and what I have just watched on Google is a figment of my imagination. 
A New exhibition by Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger is being displayed at the Baltic in Gateshead. 
The exhibition comprises of two items.
Item 1 features 65,536 pebbles laid out on a giant checker board .
Item 2 features .......wait for it........... a WALL. Yip, a wall. Ahh, but here comes the rub. The wall is a BRICK wall. Not yer ordinary common or garden wall, it's a BRICK WALL.
George W.

Well George, I'm not too sure about the pebbles - perhaps they were thrown at him and he decided to make use of them.
However, I think the wall is a terrific idea - hammer a few nails in and they could use it to hang paintings on!
I wonder how much the Arts Council coughed up for this?
