Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)

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".

COVID-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 on Globe Project

I expect you will have heard about our project to buy The Globe and create a co-operative live music venue and jazz education hub.
We are holding an event for potential investors to find out more about this exciting venture on Monday 3 March at the Lit & Phil, 23 Westgate Road NE1 1SE starting at 6pm – there will be a buffet and bubbly as well as talk and jazz.  Whether you have invested or not please come along and bring some friends.  (It would be helpful if you let me know if you’re coming so we can get some idea of how many to cater for.)

To those of you who have already bought shares – thank you for supporting us.
To those of you who have not yet invested – please do so now.  There is no advantage in waiting because if you buy shares online the money does not get debited from your bank account until after the share issue is closed.  www.microgenius.org.uk/project/pink-lane-jazz-co-op-at-the-globe-17
You may also pay in instalments if you would prefer – please email me for details.
If you have invested already maybe you could persuade someone you know to invest as well.  There’s lots of good reasons to buy shares but two that have persuaded me are
1  This will be very significant for the future of jazz in Tyneside – providing a venue where musicians can learn, share and develop their skills.
2  We are asking for investments not donations.  It’s a good business opportunity that should earn a reasonable rate of interest.
I look forward to seeing you on 3 March.

Dave Parker
