Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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".

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.

Redemption Jazz Fill Empty Shop. December 4.

John Hall (saxes); Jim Hall (keys); Keith Tulip (bs); Martin Wake (dms).
(Report by Keith Tulip.)
Great gig last night at the Empty Shop in Durham which gave us another opportunity to perform our new tunes live to what turned out to be a very appreciative audience and a cracking new venue.
All the seats were taken right through the venue and Carlo kept all the doors open through to the Bar area so that everyone got the benefit of the performance wherever they preferred to sit even the "speakeasy door" to the venue from the street was open which brought in a few more punters!
New tunes are; Manifestation | Quando | FreeLance | Hood-Winked | If | Up Tight | There's a Question Mark | Estados de Animo | Inspector | Interlude | El Loco.
Six of these are already available to view on both the website and YouTube,
(please note these are all live, second-takes, no audio editing as we just wanted to capture the essence of the new tunes with a view to developing them live).
We ran out of time last night to perform two more new tunes, so these will most likely get an airing at the next gigs in the new year which are;
Sunday  19th January at The Black Bull Blaydon 8:30pm *all proceeds to go to Marie Curie*
Wednesday 29th January at The Queens Hall Café 8:00pm c/o Hexham Jazz Club
Friday   4th April  at No28 *TBC
