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)

Lana Trio @ Jazz Café. Sept. 30

Previously, All About Jazz wrote -  "Lana Trio succeeds in harnessing its challenging, experimental flights, and the determined exploration of inventive new sounds and fresh forms of interplay into a cohesive, tough, loose, structure that surprisingly sounds engaging and accessible." 
And at the Jazz Café this Norwegian trio provided aspects of the ambient Sofa Jazz of many contemporary Scandinavian artists coupled with the ferocious all-out-attack of others  with much focus on exploring the timbre of their individual instruments whilst providing an overall enveloping soundscape.  Yes, it was totally engaging and quite accessible.  Well done to Jazz North East & Schmazz  for taking yet another chance on an untried, and previously unknown (on Tyneside), band. TIt undoubtedly adds to the international reputation of Jazz North East and Schmazz. that they are offered - and accept - this kind of coup.
