Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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)

Jamie Lawson @ King’s Hall. October 2

The start of the new academic year at Newcastle University heralded the resumption of the weekly student performance sessions in King’s Hall. The usual eclectic offering – a one hour revue featuring classical, folk, jazz, popular song and more – didn’t happen. A freshers’ week hangover perhaps being responsible for the low-key start!
A curtailed programme presented three students – Louise Anderson (voice), Rachel Hamer (folk singer) and Jamie Lawson (jazz piano).
Bebop Spoken Here went along to hear the piano player. Jamie Lawson, beginning his third year, played Misty. A front row seat, a close-up view of Lawson at the Steinway -the man can play. A fine interpretation of a standard, let’s hope we hear Lawson again. Hopefully he will turn up at the Jazz Café’s regular jam session. Get along to the Caff next Tuesday just in case he wanders in. Peter Gilligan and co. will be impressed.
