Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

Chris Hodgkin's International Quartet to play Zeffirellis

Last year I listened to a recording by New York-based Korean pianist - Jinjoo Yoo and I was knocked out. When I heard that she was touring the UK as part of the Chris Hodgkin's International Quartet (Chris Hodgkins, trumpet/flugel; Jinjoo Yoo, piano; Wayne Wilkinson, guitar and Alison Raynor, bass) I was excited. My euphoria was shortlived, Newcastle wasn't on the menu.
Tonight they are at Scarborough Jazz Club whilst on Saturday, May 25, they play Zeffirellis in Ambleside - so near and yet so far.

If you can make it to Zeff's - then make it!
