Bebop Spoken There

More from Jazz Monthly:

Jack Cooke: "...neither Giuffre nor Jim Hall are even adequate jazz musicians, they are technically limited, and more importantly, seem unable to improvise logically" - (Review of a JATP concert. Jazz Monthly May 1960)

Bill Evans: "A composer writes something, and an orchestra interprets it--he spends maybe six months writing 10 minutes of music, but a jazz musician spends 10 minutes of playing 10 minutes of music, and he performs it himself". - (Jazz Monthly July1960).

OXYD is a five-member band based in Paris, France. Influenced by modern jazz musicians, as Jim Black, Steve Coleman, John Hollenbeck, Marc Ducret and bands like AlasNoAxis, Kneebody, Radiohead or Sonic Youth. The band play their own compositions inspired by Europeean and American jazz music, but with influences of rock, pop, free jazz and contemporary music.
Since its creation in 2006, the band has worked on personal and original material influenced by several styles as jazz, improvised music, contemporary music and rock music. The band released three albums and performed more than 150 concerts across France, Europe, United States and China.
OXYD is currently working on some of its influences, particularly the grunge influence, personified by rock bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Soundgarden,… More than a cover project, this is a real “re-writing” process. Oxyd worked from structures of tunes, sounds experimentations, effects, rock energy of Nirvana’s music and re-infused them in a free way, with their own elements to create a real new personal music.
This work can be seen as a reflection and a focus of the band on its own influences, a research on composition and improvisation and a new approach of the audience.
The project is supported by several cultural organizations in Paris, and by the French Ministry of Culture.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
