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.

Support their big day (night)!

(Preview by Russell)
Newcastle University music students are about to give their Final Year Undergraduate performances. Strict examination conditions will make for a nerve wracking occasion. The good news is that these performances are open to the public. Better still, this year some of the jazz students will be off campus at the Jazz Café. On Tuesday (May 12th) in the upstairs room of the Pink Lane venue four students will be looking to give their performance of a lifetime and you can be there! Arrive early, it’s free admission, grab a beer, coffee or pot of tea, take a seat and show your support. At six o’clock the room will be bursting at the seams and the family and friends of Ella El-Salahi (voice) will be bursting with pride. Bebop Spoken Here has heard El-Salahi with the University’s big band and in small combos. You are in for a treat.
At 7:00pm. Jennifer Amey (voice) will knock ‘em dead. Don’t miss her. Saxophonist Faye MacCalman is sure to impress the examiners at 8:15pm and Josh Lane (trumpet) rounds off the evening at 9:10pm. Great players all, their accompanists (many fellow students) likewise, Tuesday evening will be a highlight of the year 

On Wednesday 13th make a bee-line for Culture Lab on King’s Walk (just of Barras Bridge) to hear more. Guitarist Dan Morgan gets things under way at half past five, at 6:20pm drummer Lewis West will kill ‘em (guaranteed!), as will Joe Cromey-Hawke and George Hutton (drummers both) at 7:15pm and 7:55pm respectively. These guys have been heard over the last year or two. They can play! Get along to Spaces 4 & 5, Culture Lab.

Pianist Jamie Lawson has drawn the short straw. He’s up before the examiners at the un-jazz like hour of 10:30am on Thursday (14th) in the Recital Room,  in Armstrong Building (main entrance on Queen Victoria Road, opposite the RVI). Lawson is one helluva player. Support your local jazz gunslinger/singers!
