Bebop Spoken There

Victor Wooten: "People don't expect to have bass players get together and sound like music and not just like a bunch of elephants" (JazzTimes April, 2022)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

FIRING THE FURNACE Adventures in Sound

(Notes by Dave Clarke (JNE))
Jazz North East's next three gigs practically constitute a multi-national mini festival within our Firing the Furnace autumn programme : three concerts in six days at the Central Bar, Gateshead ; the Newcastle Lit & Phil ; and the Bridge Hotel, Newcastle. Two, Irene and Sons of Kemet, are badged 'On the Outside' i.e, gigs at the more experimental/adventurous end of jazz. The third, Christoph Stiefel's Inner Language piano trio, is rhythmically complex but is otherwise straightahead, won't - scare - the - horses contemporary jazz - similar to Benjamin Moussay's enormously popular French piano trio which we promoted at the Lit & Phil in 2011.
A word of welcome to the people who joined our mailing list this week at the Ken Vandermark gig at the Cluny. We hope you enjoyed that event and will feel motivated to experience some of the other widely varied concerts which make up our programme.
THURSDAY 9th OCTOBER 8:00pm.
IRENE
Yoann Durant (sax); Clement Edouard (sax & electronics);Julian Desprez (guitar); Sebastien Brun (drums)
Voted 'Best New Band' at the 2010 La Defence National Jazz Festival, young quartet Irene are yet another adventurous group to emerge from the Parisian Coax Collectif. In guitarist Julian Desprez they share a member with the trio 'Q', who have played a couple of stunning Jazz North East gigs over the past year, but the inclusion of two saxophones and a degree of electronic manipulation gives Irene an entirely distinctive sound.
The Central Bar stands between the ends of the Tyne Bridge and the High Level Bridge in Gateshead. Nearest Metro, Gateshead Interchange. The concert room is not accessible to wheelchair users. 
CENTRAL BAR, HALF MOON LANE, GATESHEAD NE8 2AN
Tickets at the door £7.00 & £5.00 concessions.
