Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/July 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.

Preview: Francis Tulip Quartet @ The Globe - December 30

If you haven't, as of yet, made your mind up as to the Gig of the Year you may want to let it run to the wire as tomorrow night (Sunday, Dec. 30) at the Globe - HQ of the Jazz Coop - you may well find a band coming up on the rails to pip the favourites.

The Francis Tulip Quartet, young only in years, have made lasting impressions at their occasional gigs. Gigs that are only occasional because of distance meaning that, when the oracle decrees that their paths will cross, one and all should grab the opportunity and savour the moment for, like a total eclipse of the sun, it doesn't happen every day.
Team Bebop have been fortunate enough to catch most of  their gigs since they emerged, under the auspices of  Paul Edis and Jambone, from the creative womb of Sage Gateshead, paying their dues at the many jam sessions around town before morphing into a band to be reckoned with at any level which is why we are in their corner.

When you've heard them, you will be too!

Francis Tulip (guitar); Ben Lawrence (piano); Michael Dunlop (bass guitar); Matt MacKellar (drums) - remember their names, say 'hello' - in years to come you'll be dining out on it!
Lance.
Sunday, December 30 - Francis Tulip Quartet @ The Globe, 11 Railways St., Newcastle NE4 7AD. 7:30pm. £6 (£3 students).
