Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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.

Pizza Pull Plug

The monthly jazz gigs at Newcastle's Pizza Express have now ceased. This means that the Debra Milne Ensemble's gig there, scheduled for September 12, will not take place.
Better news for Debra and her ensemble is a gig at the Salsa Restaurant on Westgate Rd. just a few doors down from The Star Inn. This is on Saturday September 28 and is the first of what is hoped to be a series of monthly Saturday night gigs organised by the Pink Lane Co-op. In between, on Friday September 12, at the Lit and Phil even further down Westgate Rd, Debra and co can be heard in concert. At this rate our girl will be as much a part of the Westgate Rd. architecture as the Wetherspoon's pub.
Lance.
