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.

Bad luck brings new jazz opportunities

(Press release)
Unfortunately, two of the bands we had lined up in the next two weeks have had to cancel or postpone their performances due to illness and accident. It is bad luck but it has given us the opportunity to bring new jazz to the Globe to fill the gaps. 
On Sunday 14 April Sudden Jazz Quintet will be playing instead of Big Muddy. The quintet was very well received when it performed in a similar situation earlier this year.
On Thursday 18 April the JR Trio will be standing in for the Francis Tulip Quintet. These guys are some of the best young jazz musicians from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
We rely on people coming to gigs and buying drinks to keep Jazz.Coop running, so we would really appreciate your attendance at these replacement gigs.
Also in April, we have:
Thursday 11 April - Indigo Jazz Voices 
Showcase for jazz vocalists accompanied by a superb trio

Wednesday 17 April - Old Tom presents Harry Gallagher
Local poet and performer leads a night of songs, poems and laughter

Sunday 28 April - Blue Jazz Quintet
Long established mainstream jazz combo

Tuesday 30 April - International Jazz Day
Party to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Jazz.Coop buying the Globe.

Our regular jam sessions continue with the monthly Am Jam and More Jam and the weekly Take It To The Bridge.
The Globe, 11 Railway St., Newcastle NE4 7AD.
