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)

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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

Arts Council England

Yesterday's publication of the inevitable, in the main, cuts to the funding of the Arts means that, as always there are winners and losers. Sage Gateshead seems to have been given a few lifebelts and Jazz North hasn't found itself paddleless however, without knowing the whole picture, I can't comment with any degree of accuracy. It would therefore be invaluable to hear the views of those involved in our area as to what the future holds in store for us.
Peter Bacon asks similar questions - and explores the subject in greater depth than I feel qualified to do - on his Birmingham based blog the Jazz Breakfast.
