Bebop Spoken There

KT Reeder: "The idea of teaching somebody to improvise is just bloody ridiculous. In this country jazz has been appropriated by universities. They have jazz courses, and they churn out people who have a degree in jazz, which makes me feel very nauseous, the idea that you can be trained to do jazz." - (Giant Steps by David Burke)

Archive quotes.

The Things They Say!

'606' Club: "A toast to Lance Liddle of the terrific jazz blog 'Bebop Spoken Here'"

Preview: Pasadena Roof Orchestra at the Customs House tomorrow night (March 28)

Tomorrow night (March 28) at the Customs House, South Shields, sees the return of the Pasadena Roof Orchestra. These musical historians, like our own New Century Ragtime Orchestra, never fail to put on a great show. That the music is pre-1940 doesn't matter. Music is music, it's timeless and this band includes some of the best players in the idiom which is, of course, jazz but, also, entertainment.

Don't miss it, your only disappointment will be that space precludes you getting up to Charleston or shake your Black Bottom.

Last time I heard them was in 2016 - review.

I'll be there - vo-do-deo-do - that's all!
Lance
