Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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)

RIP Brian Sibbald

BRIAN SIBBALD, one of North Tyneside's best-known and respected bass players, passed away on Sunday 7 February 2016, aged 70 years. His love of music covered all the genres, but his real passion was for jazz, especially the classic jazz and blues of the early 20th century and the big band swing music of the 1930's - his knowledge of this music was encyclopaedic. 
The service and interment is at Whitley Bay Cemetery on Thursday 18th February at 10.30am. Sadly missed by his wife Shirley, daughter Rebecca, son-in-law Kevin, grandson Bobby, family and friends. 
RIP. 
Brian Bennett.

So sorry to hear about Brian Sibbald. Nice bass player and a nice charming person to talk with, very knowledgeable.
I just saw him in July last year, when I had a blow with Rendezvous Jazz at the Monkseaton Arms. He will be very much missed.
