Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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)

Showtime with Soznak @ Northumberland St., Newcastle - Easter Saturday (April 20)

Come rain, come shine, Paul Miskin's multi-national street band of skanksters can be found most Saturdays around Monument or on Northumberland Street belting out their danceable brand of ska, funk and pop. Today Soznak basked in unseasonal, wall-to-wall sunshine as they entertained the shopping hordes. No Jude Murphy today, however, on the plus side, jazz 'bone man David Grey took his place in the skanking frontline. Showtime was seen sporting a natty line in summer shorts - yep, the sun has definitely got its hat on! 

Later today Soznak will be part of a St George's Day party at Scotswood Sports Centre (see today's listings for details).
