Bebop Spoken There

Joe Farnsworth: "I have to say that jazz in New York will never die. It may seem like all the music happened 3,000 years ago, but, Charlie Parker, Billy Higgins, Max Roach and all the others are still here. You can feel their presence."- (DownBeat, January 2022)

As good as it gets” – Bebop Spoken Here
"Ceaselessly original and imaginative" - Schmazz website
This band is all about heartfelt improvisation on idiosyncratic tunes that stay with you. The players infuse driving jazz and latin rhythms or ambient swing with their various enthusiasms including folk and rock ballads, free jazz and the dancefloor. Their original material explores unusual meters and structures as vehicles for angular and passionate solos, with narrative melodies resonant enough to evoke a strong sense of place and time.
March 4 - James Birkett and Bradley Johnston Duo
From Eddie Lang, through Django Reinhardt, to Pat Metheny and beyond, the guitar continues to have a universal appeal. James and Bradley present a programme of music by some of the most influential players of the last hundred years taking the audience on a musical journey which moves from early jazz and blues, through swing and bebop, to cool and contemporary jazz.
