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.

International Jazz Day isn't Local Metro Day!

The May Day weekend. A time for one and all to enjoy their individual pursuits. For some, a trip to the seaside, for others a visit to a DIY store and, for jazz fans, this being International Jazz Day (What, you didn't see it mentioned in the media? Come to think of it, neither did I!)The Jazz Coop are presenting a day-long, well into the night, programme of sets by local bands of all styles at The Globe. I was intent of grabbing some of the action. However, the best laid schemes of Mice, Men and Metros do, all so frequently, gang awry - particularly in the latter case.
Even my trusted chariot the number 27 didn't show and, when it did, the passengers were contained sardine-like.
So, sadly, I've had to forego the IJD/Globe 3rd Anniversary.
Hopefully, some of our other team members will be there to report on an important milestone for this north-east jazz haven.
Lance.
