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.

Evening Chronicle/Pizza Express Competition.

Pizza Express on Dean St. - the other one in Newcastle - has had a promising response since it decided to emulate its famous Soho HQ and put jazz on the menu. After a seasonal break, the Pizzeria returns in February with gigs on Feb 10 and Feb 24. In conjunction with the Evening Chronicle they are promoting a competition which involves 'guessing' whether it will be The Paul Skerritt Band or The Lindsay Hannon Plus.
The prize is an incredible 3 course meal for 4 + a bottle of wine and 2 tickets for the Gateshead International Jazz Festival held at Sage Gateshead in April (15-17).
All you have to do is visit the Chronicle website here.
