Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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!

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".

COVID-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.

A Triple Treat with the Paul Donnelly Trio @ Dormans Club Middlesbrough April 19.

 Paul Donnelly (guitar); Stuart Collingwood (keys/bass pedal); and Paul Smith (drums).
Continuing with the guest band nights at Dormans, a most successful session was held with the newly formed "Paul Donnelly Trio" playing to a full house. 
The three highly regarded musicians impressed the audience from the start with Monk's Straight No Chaser, followed by Work Song and the inimitable Paul Smith playing a fine solo. A mixed repertoire included This Masquerade, St.Thomas, Pat Metheny's James, Take Five, West Coast Blues with nice Wes style octave work from Paul and an interesting version of Leaving On a Jet Plane. On Jimmy Smith's The Cat Stuart played a great organ solo with fine bass pedal work. After several more numbers, the night was finished with Wes Montgomery's Jingles and an encore of Seven Come Eleven. It was satisfying to see such a good turn out which included many local musicians.
