Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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)

Gateshead International Jazz Festival 2013 Preview

Friday 5 April. Northern Rock Foundation Hall. 10:30 pm
Stonephace Stabbins
(Preview by Russell)
British reedsman Larry Stabbins enjoyed considerable success in the 1980s as co-leader of the band Working Week. The cross-over jazz/funk/pop/soul act achieved air play and scaled the charts. Veteran British jazzers were in on the plot and vinyl ‘product’ of the period has become rather collectable. Stabbins last appeared in Newcastle at the Corner House Hotel and this gig at the Gateshead International Jazz Festival has the makings of a late-night, no holds barred, raucous blow out. The line-up features the wonderful Zoe Rahman (piano) with the promise of an inter-galactic trip to Planet Coltrane and orbiting station Pharaoh Sanders. Catch the all-night bus, book a taxi, walk home, best of all go to the late night session at Hoochie Coochie ffor Soweto Kinch’s second festival appearance. Whatever you do, don’t miss Stonephace Stabbins.
