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.

Abbie Finn plays Pinter

Durham County Youth Big Band, Durham Alumni Big Band, Leeds College of Music, Trinity Laban and now...Harold Pinter. 

Masters graduate Abbie Finn is well known to jazz audiences from Tyneside down to Teesside and beyond. A finals' recital behind her, drummer Finn is about to tread the boards in Harold Pinter's Night School. The Pinter Theatre (formerly the Comedy Theatre) on Panton Street in London's West End, is hosting a Pinter at the Pinter season. Award-winning drummer Abbie has been cast in the playwright's early '60s work which is to be directed by Ed Stambollouian.

Abbie the thespian is, no doubt, news to many readers of this blog! Abbie informed Bebop Spoken Here that in addition to being a member of the on-stage cast, she will be behind the traps...now that's the Abbie we know!

A trip to London to take in the sights, perhaps a gig, then sign up for Night School (Nov 1 - Dec 8). The Pinter Theatre box office number is 0844 871 7622. Book now!
