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.

The Dynamic Duo @ The Black Bull

The north east of England is fortunate in having many fine guitarists working regularly in the region and beyond. Two of the best are heading to Bridge Street, Blaydon this Sunday (June 18). Virtuoso is the word when talking about James Birkett and Bradley Johnston. At eight o’clock on Sunday the guitar duo will take to the stage to present an impeccable selection of jazz guitar tunes drawn from the early masters (Eddie Lang, Carl Kress, Dick McDonough and others), stopping off to dazzle the audience with, perhaps, Doxy, then taking a look at the duo’s mutual favourite, Pat Metheny. More, Birkett and Johnston will bring one or two of their own compositions to the table.
Blaydon Jazz Club presents, as Humph would have said: the very best of jazz. Sunday’s concert is top drawer material. It is no exaggeration to suggest that you will hear world class jazz guitar at the Black Bull. Make a note of the date – Sunday 18 June. Arrive in good time to bag a front row seat.
All proceeds from the evening will be donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care in memory of Margaret Barnes.
