Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)

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".

COVID-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.

14 days and counting…book the baby sitter now!

The nights are drawing in, Christmas is coming, it's Vasilis Xenopoulos time! October means one thing…Vasilis Xenopoulos will soon be back in town. Book the baby sitter now! On Friday 21 October at the Traveller’s Rest in Cockerton, Darlington, the tenor saxophonist extraordinaire will once again attract a capacity audience. The doors open   at eight o’clock. Arrive by 7:30pm to join the queue, leave it any later and you can kiss goodbye to a seat! Vasi will be working with pianist Paul Edis, bassist Andy Champion and Russ Morgan (drums). If you live within a fifty-mile radius of DL3 9ER be there!

Xenopoulos and Edis cross the border – Northumberland/Cumbria – to play a couple of engagements before reuniting with Champion and Morgan at the Black Bull in Blaydon on Sunday 23. The first set starts at 8:00pm. Best seats are at a premium at Blaydon Jazz Club, therefore, the best advice is to arrive early. Seven o’clock should do it. Last year’s gig with Vasi and the boys saw the lounge bulging at the seams.
Who’s your favourite pianist? Double bass player? Drummer? Ah, yes. Americans, long since departed to the Big Jazz Club in the Sky. Jazz ain’t what it used to be, you say. Switch off telly, put on coat, head to Blaydon NE21 4JJ. Prepare to eat your pork pie hat! Paul Edis, piano, Andy Champion, double bass and drummer Russ Morgan will make you think you’re on 52nd street. Vasilis Xenopoulos is the real deal. Don’t forget your pork pie hat.  

Russell.
