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.

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.
