Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

Star Struck Off!

The Wednesday night sessions at the Star Inn on Westgate Rd., Newcastle are no more. Dwindling audiences and low bar takings means the venture is no longer financially viable. Once again jazz fans have been hoisted by their own petard.
This leaves the Chilli on Chillingham Rd., as the only Wednesday evening session although the View Carré Jazzmen at the Crescent Club, Cullercoats and the Jazz Esquires at the Black Horse, Monkseaton, continue to keep afloat on Wednesday lunchtimes.
On a brighter note, come September the sessions at Ernest, down Ouseburn way, are set to re-start on Thursday evenings.
