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.

Farewell Blues

Ex-Pat and former member of the Panama Jazzmen Don Armstrong plays his final gig with The Vieux Carré Jazzmen at The Holystone tomorrow afternoon (Oct. 6) before returning home to Brisbane, Australia on Friday. 
Sounds like it'll be a great gig with Don who, way back when, also played with Ian and Mike Carr among others, on clarinet & alto sax, Lawrence McBriarty, trombone, Bill Colledge, string bass, Fred Thompson, drums and Brian Bennett on banjo. Showtime 1.00 - 3.00pm. 
I’m told that there's also an excellent menu choice with a selection of daily 'specials' and real ales. 
The Holystone Pub & Restaurant, Whitley Road, Holystone, Newcastle upon Tyne NE27 0DA
