Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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)

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.

Tonight @ The Globe (July 2)

Tonight at the Globe Jazz Bar, HQ of the Jazz Coop, sees top north-east guitarist Steve Glendinning teaming up with ace vibraphonist Chris Jelly. Both are members of the area's top funk band King Bee but, for tonight, they are returning to their jazz roots, with reverberations of Lionel Hampton, Gary Burton, George Benson, Pat Metheny. The band will be performing repertoire from the guitar/vibes legends, interesting takes on some of the standard jazz repertoire, as well as original compositions and the odd funker to get those feet tapping. As well as Steve and Chris, Mike Clarke is on bass and Mark Robertson is on drums. This is a no-brainer, where else could you be but The Globe (11 Railway St., Newcastle NE4 7AD) tonight?
