Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

All Aboard the Tall Ships!

Up to thirty tall ships will visit Blyth over the August bank holiday weekend (Friday 26 – Monday 29). The Port of Blyth is to host the North Sea Tall Ships Regatta. Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to converge on the south Northumberland port to view up close – and in some cases board – some of the biggest vessels in their class. Food and drink, stalls, nightly firework displays and live music are all part of the celebrations.
Jazz will play its part during the weekend ranging from the Dixieland jazz of the Vieux Carré Jazzmen to the Charlie Christian inspired ‘swing jazz guitar’ of local Blyth Valley guitarist Anth Purdy to the biggest of big bands, the Tyne Valley Big Band. See the right-hand column gig list for day-by-day details. It’s all free!
