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)

Ray Chester’s Music Library Heard at Gateshead Old Town Hall. May 9

Bebop Spoken Here’s Deep South correspondent Tony Eales made the trip north to be at Gateshead Old Town Hall to hear the Vivo Swing Orchestra delve into the library of the late Ray Chester to play a selection of his award-winning arrangements. A good turn-out assembled in the grand surroundings of the former town hall to hear the north east-based ensemble play two sets of timeless numbers including Night Train, Satin Doll and Button Up Your Overcoat. The orchestra’s hope is to do it again sometime soon. Ray Chester’s music library was kindly gifted to Sage Gateshead by the Chester family to be used as an educational resource. There is much more material to be studied and performed and will serve as an invaluable learning opportunity for future generations of musicians.
