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.

Meanwhile, Back in Manhattan...

Earlier this year, legendary American pianist/songstress just happened to be in Jesmond where she delighted and surprised the locals by sitting in at the Dun Cow's alternative Wednesday's jam session.
Daryl is unlikely to be there this coming Wednesday but, if you happen to be in New York on Tuesday, August 28, Daryl Sherman's “Too Marvelous For Words" show featuring the music of Johnny Mercer, Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart/Hammerstein with James Chirillo (guitar) and Boots Maleson (bass) is at the new Birdland Theater, down in the basement of the famous club - get  there for 7:00 or 9:45 PM.
Details: www.birdlandjazz.com/calendar  Birdland Jazz Club 315 W. 44th St. New York, NY 10036 212-581-3080.
If you can't make it - even though airline flights are usually more reliable than the Tyneside Metro - take a chance on the Dun Cow on August 8. Who knows who may sit in - Kate O'Neill, Alice Grace, Elling, Porter?
Lance.

Word has it the house band - no names, that would be telling! - will be worth hearing on its own.
