Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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".

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.

Jazz with Your Coffee?

BSH is a jazz blog, I know, but I like to recommend coffee shops where you can hear jazz played. I’ve mentioned the good selection of recorded music to be heard in Nero’s Caffe in King Street at South Shields, both jazz and other interesting music, such as Joni Mitchell tracks.
I discovered another such venue just yesterday – Chai Coffee House, next to the Chichester Metro station at South Shields (Chai, Chi, get it?) An abundance of swing music, Ella I think, to accompany a delicious selection of food, toasted bagels, smoothies, etc . And what’s more, this is run mainly by volunteers, for Hospitality & Hope, an organisation which supports people who are homeless or at risk. Everything you spend goes to the charity. I’ll be there again soon!
