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)

Why I'll miss these weekend gigs in 'The Toon' - Hate that word!


I 'tried' - pun intentional - but the crowds at Hebburn station and on the sardine packed Metro trains made my proposed trip to the Jazz Café a bit of a 'scrum'.  Suddenly, all the Mackems and Maggies are fans of the funny shaped ball! So, rather than risk life and limb, I went instead, to a local pub where they also smash peoples faces in. However, unlike St. James'
Park, Twickenham etc where that is part and parcel of the sport. they get arrested for doing it!
And this was but the eve of the game twixt Scotland (SNP) and South Africa - may whoever scores the most of them things win.
I think the only true sport is boxing!
Lance.
