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".


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.

Coldest Night of the Winter but...

Brian Sibbald, bass; Fred Thompson, drums; Lawrence McBriarty, trombone; Graham Hardy, trumpet and Brian Bennett, banjo
It's the coldest night of the winter, but The Vieux Carré Jazzmen played 'red hot' 1920's jazz at Gibside National Trust's 'Half-Term Hog Roast' barbecue. 
In spite of the intensely cold weather, there was a fantastic turn-out of families and friends to enjoy this popular winter event. 
Watch out for other VCJ events at Gibside later in the year.
