Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

Learn from the Sage Lulo Reinhardt

(Preview by Russell)
The name is Reinhardt, Lulo Reinhardt. The great-nephew of Django Reinhardt is coming to Gateshead! On Tuesday 30 September the gypsy jazz guitarist visits Sage Gateshead mid-way through an extensive British tour.
Born into the Reinhardt dynasty, from an early age Lulo had a guitar in his hands. At the age of twelve he toured with the Mike Reinhardt Sextet. Possessing an authentic gypsy jazz guitar technique, Lulo embraced other cultures including flamenco and Latin jazz sounds. Lulo introduced piano and drums to his music calling it Latin Swing. CD and DVD releases have followed at regular intervals, the latest, BAWO, is dedicated to his late father.
Lulo Reinhardt is an endorsee of Saga Musical Instruments’ Gitane Jazz Guitar. At Sage Gateshead there is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from a master practitioner of the art as Lulo leads an afternoon workshop. The evening concert features his five piece band – Daniel Waltinger (violin), Winfried Schuld (piano), Harald Becker (bass) and Uli Krämer-Ragusi (drums).
To book your place (and to secure a discounted workshop and concert ticket offer) contact Sage Gateshead’s box office – 0191 443 4661.
