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)

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".

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.

RIP Tony Raine

Just before Beryl Bryden died in July 1998 she came to Ashington Jazz Club (not to sing) but with her pianist Tony Raine (real name Ramm?). He was a non-reader but could put a jazz style to any tune. Tony was from Newbiggin and has been in a care home there for quite a while. He has now passed away. He was a great character and played piano in some of the London gangland clubs in the 60s. He was reputed to have had Louis Armstrong's gold ring. The funeral takes place on Wednesday and I intend to go to represent the jazz community.
