Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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.

Jazz Record Requests Live @ Sage Gateshead Free Thinking Festival - March 10

The annual Free Thinking Festival, run in conjunction with BBC Radio 3, is now a firmly established event in Sage Gateshead's calendar and attracts a diversity of visitors eager to discover, explore and open up their minds to a variety of observations on the 21st century and how it has changed our lives. Social media, gender issues and so much more.
Visit the Sage Gateshead website for more information on what it's all about.
Intriguing as all this was, the main interest for the BSH team was the live broadcast of Jazz Record Requests presented, as always, by Alyn Shipton. Alyn also laid down his credentials, not just as a broadcaster, but as a jazz musician by bookending the program with a live trio session by Emma Fisk (violin); James Birkett (guitar) and himself on double bass.
As regards the actual JRR program there were a few 'hipsters', not entirely unknown to this site, 
introducing their own requests.

Listen here.
PS: Tomorrow morning (March 11) Sarah Walker talks to saxophonist and composer Tim Garland. The program runs from 9am to 12noon. Details.

Sounds good. I missed Free Thinking this year as we were at Words by the Water at Keswick for the weekend. JRR is queued on my iPlayer downloads - looking forward to it. BBC roadies are dismantling the pop-up studio as I type.
