Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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)

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.

At the North Shields Jazz Band Ball!

(Preview by Russell)
Jazz at the Exchange! It’s like old times. Mike Durham’s series of classic jazz concerts at the then Saville Exchange on Howard Street in North Shields set the standard and now, in 2016, the rejuvenated Exchange venue is once again to host jazz. On Saturday, October 22, three of the region’s top bands unite to present a triple bill of jazz and blues. The hall and its raked seats are as before with cabaret style seating in front of the stage. The jazz starts at seven o’clock with the now legendary Rae Brothers. Mac and Dave know their Bolden from their Beiderbecke, steeped in the jazz of New Orleans. A jumpin’ blues session with Brian Lynham’s No Time for Jive follows at 8:15, and to round off the evening, Maureen Hall’s Rendezvous Jazz take to the stage at nine thirty.
The entertainment is scheduled to finish at 10:30, perhaps a shade later if you demand an encore! The Exchange is a matter of five minutes’ walk from North Shields Metro Station. Admission is £10.00. (seating at a table) and £8.50. if you prefer to sit in the raked seating to the rear of the hall. Give it a try, if you make it a success, you never know, jazz at the Exchange could once more be a regular evening gig at the coast.
