Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

Trish Cowes Nonet Preview

Paul Bream's Jazz Alert gave the following details of the forthcoming concert:
TRISH CLOWES TANGENT NONET
Trish Clowes (saxophones); Gwylim Simcock (piano); Chris Montague (guitar); Calum Gourlay (bass); James Maddren (drums); Thomas Gould & Thea Spiers (violins); Adam Robinson (viola); Louise McMonagle (cello)Friday 5th October | 7.45pm
The Sage | Gateshead
Tickets £13.50 from 0191 443 4661

"No sooner had I plugged this in last week’s ‘Alert’ than Guardian critic John Fordham backed me up, firstly on Friday with an enthusiastic review of Trish Clowes’ new album, and then on Saturday with a glowing preview of this gig (“Clowes’ coolly imaginative sax-playing grows steadily more assured”). Then via Twitter I learned that she has just been named as a Radio 3 ‘New Generation Artist’: this scheme is designed to nurture young musical talent, and Trish is only the fourth jazz musician to feature in the nearly 100 nominees since it was launched in 1999. 
I’m not actually claiming credit for this sudden cascade of plaudits for Trish, but I think it does reinforce my endorsement of her Sage gig."  

Paul Bream.

As a further endorsement of the above, would-be concertgoers who are wavering might like to hear these two delightful tracks from Trish Clowes latest CD.
