Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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.

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.

Vasi's Back in Town and so is Nigel Price...

The ever-popular saxman Vasilis Xenopoulos began his barnstorming tour of the northeast this lunchtime in tandem with pianist Paul Edis at the Lit and Phil in Newcastle. 
Tonight, the duo, augmented with top UK guitarist Nigel Price, Paul Susans on bass and Russ Morgan on drums, play the Opus 4 Club in Darlington. 
Tomorrow night, sans Edis, they play Eyemouth and come Sunday they're at Blaydon Jazz Club - Mick Shoulder plays bass on this one.
Russell will be reporting all of the gigs apart from Eyemouth (passport expired) so watch this space.
Jerry was at today's lunchtime session and sent these photos as a taster to the Lit and Phil review.
