Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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)

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.

Greg Spero - coming to a venue near you!


I'm getting confused - easily done these days - but it seems to me that Greg Spero and his Stateside quartet are due to appear at just about everywhere which, let's face it, is an absolute coup for the region. So, for my benefit as much as yours, the ace Chicago pianist is doing the following dates:



May 10: Fuse Media Centre, Prudhoe (Workshop).
May 11: Bridge Hotel, Newcastle - (Quartet session).
May 12: Fuse Media Centre - (Quartet session).
May 15: Recital Room, Newcastle Uni. 8pm - (solo set in support of Roger Beaujolais).
May 17: Dacre Hall, Lanercost, Cumbria - (workshop with quartet.)
There may be others!
Details for most of these gigs can be found in the LH column. Those who remember Greg's last appearance in the area will be ticking off the days in anticipation!
Lance.
