Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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.

Vocalist Alice has only recently moved to the region and played a handful of gigs with duos and trios, one of which led Bebop Spoken Here's Lance Liddell (sic!) to look forward to this gig and write "Even if Diana Krall is on at The Arena.......it will be a heads or tails situation."
Accompanying Alice is as strong a quartet as will be playing anywhere in the North East on the 18th : Peter Gilligan piano, Paul Gowland saxophones, Paul Grainger double bass and Russ Morgan drums.
