Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)

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".

COVID-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.

Africarmen @ Dance City

Bawren Tavaziva’s Africarmen is on tour, next stop Newcastle. Artistic Director and Choreographer Tavaziva’s dance creation is of interest to Bebop Spoken Here due to the involvement of Jazz Warriors’ co-founder Fayyaz Virgi. This touring production should be of interest regardless, but the trombonist’s jazz credentials are the obvious attraction.
From the early days of the Jazz Warriors to Graham Collier to Carla Bley’s Very Big Band to Jason Moran’s Big Band to Amy Winehouse and many others, Fayyaz Virgi works across the disciplines. He has composed and arranged the music for Africarmen and this week the production calls at Newcastle’s Dance City for two nights. Set in an oil-rich military dictatorship somewhere in Africa, the story follows Carmen’s dreams   of escape and a better life.
To book your seat for Friday 12 or Saturday 13 February (or both) call Dance City on 0191 261 0505 or visit www.dancecity.com. Africarmen also visits Jersey, Doncaster, Inverness and Musselburgh. Visit www.tavazivadance.com.
