Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

Pink Lane Jazz Co-op Update

Salsa, the friendly relaxed café/bar in Westgate Road, is going to be hosting jazz on Saturday nights - starting this Saturday 21 September with the BudTones, a well known modern jazz quintet that used to play at the Jazz Cafe.  Music starts at 9.30pm and continues to midnight.  Admission is free.
On the following Saturday nights we've lined up Debra Milne Ensemble, Safe Sextet, Gabriele mit Drei, Blue Jazz Quartet with Lindsay Hannon and more (for details see http://www.pinklanejazz.co.uk/events/).  
Salsa is a friendly, relaxed cafe/bar that serves delicious snacks and light meals.  It's busy in the early evening, and the owners are hoping that by putting on jazz after 9.30pm it will stay busier later and attract new customers.  We think it could become a very attractive venue for jazz that both musicians and audiences will love.  We need your help to make it succeed.

Please tell all your friends to come to Salsa on Saturday nights.
PLJC.
