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!

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 Judith (Judy) Moore

The funeral arrangements have been finalised for Judith Moore who passed away on May 9. Judith loved music and in her younger days was a regular at such north east venues as the New Orleans Club, the Club Agogo, the Downbeat, the Corner House and, in later years, Hoochie Coochie and the Jazz Café. Sadly, failing health meant Judith had been absent from the scene in recent months but she will be remembered and deeply missed by all who knew her.
May Judith Rest In Peace
Lance.
The funeral is on Thursday, May 26 - 10:30am at Saltwell Crematorium, Gateshead. Chronicle/Journal notice.

Sorry to hear this. I remember her visits to the Jazz cafe. I enjoyed meeting her.

never met her, but share in the accolades of a lady who was "one of us" and who loved Jazz.

Music played at Judith's funeral - The Beatles 'In My Life' and Maria Muldaur 'Midnight at the Oasis'.
