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)

Jamie Cullum @ Sage Gateshead as seen by the Guardian.

Jamie Cullum's Friday night gig at Sage Gateshead was reviewed by the Guardian.
You can read all about it here.
But why no mention of support act Iceni? This was arguably the biggest night of their career - presumably the Guardian reviewer was propping the bar up.
Thanks to LondonJazzNews for bringing the review to the attention of non-Guardian readers.

Apologies to Guardian journalist Dave Simpson who assures me he wasn't propping the bar up but actually doing a four hour drive to get to the gig.
