Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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)

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".

COVID-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.

Tyne Bar Blues Festival. July 14

The annual all-dayer. Non-stop blues down at the Ouseburn Delta. The outdoor stage for once came into its own. Beer, shades and tans occupied every vantage point on a jumpin’ hot day. Chicago blues, Mississippi Delta blues, West Coast, all blues. A flying visit (an alternative option beckoned) hit upon TC and the Moneymakers. TC (Tom Cocks – harmonica & vocals) and the boys- Karl Moon (guitar), Lee Parry (bass), Andy Westbrook (drums) - made the journey from York. The front man vocalist blew a mean harp backed by a tight trio of guitar, bass and drums. Fifties Chicago blues, a Texas shuffle, straight vocals complimented authentic blues guitar throughout a well-received set. If you happen to be in York…Local lad Bob Bates brought along three guitars and any number of tunes, to take us On the Road Again by way of Bo Diddley, Robert Johnson to a Mannish Muddy Waters. The festival main attraction Lyndon Anderson would soon be closing a perfect Ouseburn blues day but the call of a Horn Dog up on the hill made your reviewer hit the trail (Hellhound or not).

Russell.
