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)

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".

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.

As one door closes…

(Report by Russell/Tony).
Darlington Jazz Club switched off the lights one more time, locked the door and walked off into the night. The Forum Music Centre on Borough Road is history. The jazz nights came to an end – the end of an era – last night with a memorable gig by the Darlington Big Band.
However, Bebop Spoken Here’s Deep South correspondent Tony Eales sends news of an exciting future. Darlington Jazz Club will be reborn on Sunday April 12 at a new town centre venue. The Quakerhouse pub in Mechanics Yard, just off Skinnergate, will be one of a select number of venues to stage club events. Sunday April 12 features the excellent post-bop combo the Jazz Tones.
Less than two weeks later the fantastic Darlington Jazz Festival returns (April 23-26) at the Quakerhouse and other jazz-friendly town centre places. A full festival preview will appear on these pages in due course. As one door closes…
