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.

Equinox Full House

Our man in Darlington reports a large turn-out for Abbie Finn’s homecoming with Leeds College of Music band Equinox. The former Durham County Youth Big Band drummer, no stranger to Darlington Jazz Club, played a set of standards in the company of student friends Jake Rider (alto), Sam Lowther (guitar) and bassist Manraj Lall.
Tony Eales reckons guitarist Sam Lowther caught the eye, or should that be ear? This gig at the Quakerhouse was a first for the quartet. By all accounts it won’t be their last. Catch Equinox next time they’re on the road.
