Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

Jeff Barnhart @ South Shields and Gosforth

Just a reminder that the great ragtime and stride piano man from Mystic, Connecticut, Jeff Barnhart, will be in town this weekend. On Friday night he can be heard at the grand piano in the Customs House, South Shields (main theatre) from 8.00pm, solo in the first half and with local assistance (trumpet, clarinet/sax and drums) in the second - Box Office is 0191 454 1234. 
On Saturday Jeff is at the Trinity Centre, Gosforth, with a rather different programme - first half with his flautist wife, Anne, in a set taking us from Ragtime to Broadway (with rest-stops at Dixieland and Swing, Jeff informs us), second half in a solo exploration of some of Fats Waller's lesser-known compositions (some even unpublished/unrecorded) ..... "Unsaturated Fats", as you might say. Box office for this one is 0191 285 6130. Note 7:30pm start for Trinity concert.
Hope to see you at one or the other!
Mike.
