Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (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!

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.

JJ's Back in Town

Monday night, the only game in town is at the Prohibition Bar in Gateshead and it's a BIG ONE!
Julija Jacenaite, Lithuania's gift to the world of jazz, appears at the railway arch speakeasy as part of her quartet.
JJ has been causing a sensation in recent weeks at the local jam sessions and the question everyone is asking is "When can we see her on a gig?"
Well, the wait is over. Monday, July 31 at the Prohibition Bar, Arch 3, Brandling St., Gateshead NE8 2BA sees Julija socking it to them alongside Joel Brown (keys); Paul Grainger (bass) and Matt MacKellar (drums). I'm not sure what time the show starts but the doors open at 7pm which, as it's a compact venue, might be a good time to get there so you can grab a seat. 
And it's free! Although donations will be welcomed and, after you've heard her, you certainly won't begrudge whatever you can afford.
And it doesn't end there either. 
Empty Shop, Framwellgate Bridge, Durham DH1 4SY August 13 @ 4pm. The Matt MacKellar Trio with Julija Jacenaite...
Lance.
