Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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".

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.

Stumblin'

Just stumbled across this almost by accident so for anybody not so lucky, Graeme Wilson is bringing a quintet - that's right a quintet - to Darlo on Friday night. For anybody in the south of the region, this should be unmissable.
I saw his quartet twice last year and both could easily have been in my best gigs of the year. They stole the Festival at Burton Agnis and were knocking at the door of the formidable QCBA Quartet at Ilkley.
Alongside Lord Paul Edis, Mick Shoulder and Adam Sinclair he's joined by trumpet master Noel Dennis who played an excellent set here with his own quintet last year. This is a standard quintet, that perfect creation which is still all too rare in the North East. Gotta do it when you get the chance.

Steve, no need to stumble. The Opus 4 listings have been published since the turn of the year and, in the RH column of BSH this Friday's gigs have been listed since, er well, last Friday. The info's here for those with eyes to seek. If you want to know more - Google!
Incidentally, if Edis is a Lord, does this make the others serfs?

I'm clearly not as thorough as I need to be.
Who knows what goes on in the House of Lords? Lord Paul I suppose. Actually aren't you a Sir?

Lance said...

No. I'm not a Sir, that was one of my ancestors from way back although I'm up for an OBE (Order of Bebop Enthusiasts) if HRH reads this blog.
