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.

Hoochie Coochie This Sunday (July 17)


Hoochie Coochie is the place to be this coming Sunday with Gerry Richardson's Big Idea once again filling in the popular late afternoon/early evening slot (5pm)
The band has a big following which isn't surprising given the pedigree of the players - all pivotal figures across the genres with Gerry's Hammond grooves as good as anybody's in the UK and beyond.
Add Rod Sinclair's guitar, Sue Ferris, Garry Linsley and Jamie Toms on saxes, Chris Hibbard on trombone, a couple of trumpets (maybe Mark Webb and Dave Hignett) and Paul Smith on drums, a mix of originals and covers and you'll soon realise that Gerry's Big Idea makes it a very Good Idea to hear them at Hoochie Coochie!
Lance.
Sunday, July 17, Gerry Richardson's Big Idea - Hoochie Coochie, 54 Pilgrim St., Newcastle NE1 6SF. 5pm. £5.
