Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

No More Tees Hot Club @ Cleveland Bay

Ron Hampton, guitarist and general factotum of the Tees Hot Club, sent me this item of news: 
It is with regret that Tees Hot Club have to announce a halt to their fortnightly appearances at the Cleveland Bay. Unfortunately, attendances have deteriorated over the last six months, proving it to be impossible to continue. 
We wish to thank all of our regulars for their attendance over the last few years and look forward to seeing you at Dormans Club where Tees Hot Club will continue to play and any further THC shows in the future.
We're sad to hear that Ron, but I know you'll keep us updated on any future changes and I hope next Thursday's jam at Dorman's goes well.
Lance
