Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

GIJF Day 2: Jazz Record Requests

(Review by Russell).
A live edition of Jazz Record Requests! The welcoming yet authoritative voice of Alyn Shipton visits jazz homes tuned to BBC 3 every Saturday afternoon. Here at the Sage Shipton invited the audience to listen to requests, request a track of their own and hear    some jazz ‘live’ from the stage in Hall Two at the Sage. The programme will be broadcast this coming Saturday (13 April) on Radio 3, so you will have to listen to find out which tracks were chosen for broadcast!
A bonus for the audience in the hall was a performance by Lighthouse Trio (Tim Garland, Gwilym Simcock and Asaf Sirkis), Simcock solo and the wonderful Zoe Rahman played Ellington. The musicians, including Larry Stabbins (he was on late night duty the previous evening), joined the presenter to discuss their love of the music.  Shipton and the Sage are to be commended for including a listener’s choice of a tune by the West Jesmond Rhythm Kings featuring the late Mike Durham (musician and festival organiser of the international Whitley Bay Jazz Festival and Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party). It is to be hoped JRR, as it is affectionately known, returns next year and the year after.

Er, well, not recently he doesn't - the timing having been messed about by 1) the differing dates of introduction of US/UK daylight time and 2) Wagner (yet again!)

It's about time Radio 3 fixed the time of JRR and pushed the opera to the graveyard slot! Oooh, was that a pig I just saw flying by my window?

When I finally did get to hear JRR (2130 this evening) it was certainly well worth the wait.
