Bebop Spoken There

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.

The o2 Academy Sage All Stars

This coming Wednesday (19 October) Sage Gateshead’s tutors follow in the footsteps of the Fab Four. The year is 1963. The Beatles topped the bill at the Majestic, Newcastle.  The year is 2016. Nick Pride and the Pimptones, Triptych and Coast Road top the bill at the o2 Academy. The Majestic is the o2, the o2 is the Majestic, one and the same. Please, Please, (Me?), get along to the o2 Academy to hear some of the best tutors in the business performing funk, jazz and pop (great vocal harmonies!) to an audience of music students …and you.
Yes, you! Open to all, the o2 Academy triple bill kicks-off at 7:30pm. Admission is £6.00 (plus booking fee) and for your money you get to hear the sharp-suited Pimptones led by soul-jazz man Nick Pride, Triptych (Messrs Paul Edis, Paul Susans and Rob Walker) and Coast Road. Funksters par excellence, the Pimptones tour far and wide, selling shed loads of albums; Triptych (piano, bass and drums) write and perform original material; Coast Road (local reference) play, and sing, and write. Tunesmiths, consummate performers all (Dave Camlin, Brendan Murphy, Paul Susans, Rachel Cross, Bex Mather, Bethany Elen-Coyle), Coast Road, hear them on Westgate Road this coming Wednesday, 19 October.
