Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 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.

St Cuthbert’s Durham Beat

(Russell reports/photo courtesy of Hugh C)
Bebop Spoken Here’s Man without Portfolio, Tony Eales, rounds up goings-on at Empty Shop, Ushaw College and a day trip to the Literary and Philosophical Society. Friday: an auspicious occasion, Ushaw College. Paul Edis, commissioned to write a suite for Ushaw College commemorating St Cuthbert and his links with the region, was rewarded with the ‘house full’ signs going up. (See previous post.)
Edis and the Ensemble gave a second performance today (Saturday) in Durham Cathedral at three o’clock.
Friday lunchtime: the Ruth Lambert Trio entertained the Lit & Phil audience. A good few turned out (additional seating on standby). Thursday: Framwellgate Bridge, Durham. The returning Rick Laughlin went to the shop, an Empty Shop. Pianist Laughlin, now residing ‘up north’ following a lengthy spell in London, played to a predominately student crowd at the flourishing Empty Shop enterprise. More from Our Man Eales in the coming weeks.
