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)

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".

Preview: Jake Walker Orchestra @ The Black Swan - July 8


New Orleans, Dixieland, swing, it's the new thing, you know. Recent visits to BSH's heartland by the likes of America's Frog and Henry, the Shake 'Em Up Jazz Band and Taylor Smith and the Roamin' Jasmine (performing to large crowds) and gigs by homegrown talent - Adrian Cox's Profoundly Blue, the Tenement Jazz Band, the Red Hot Rhythm Makers, the Northern Monkey Brass Band, House of the Black Gardenia - tell the story...swing (and all things New Orleans) is the thing! 

Tomorrow night (Monday) in the Black Swan (Newcastle Arts Centre) Swing Tyne devotees (and anyone else who fancies it) will be dancing the night away to the sounds of Jake Walker*. Jake who? you ask. No, no, not 'he', 'they'. The Jake Walker Orchestra, all the way from Ghent, Belgium, will be setting the tempo from eight o'clock. 

The seven-piece outfit - trumpet, trombone, two reeds, piano, bass, drums - loves Louis, Jelly Roll, Basie, Duke, Benny G, John Kirby et al. The orchestra's Monday night gig in Newcastle falls between two Edinburgh engagements (Sunday, then Tuesday). Check 'em out on YouTube then get down to Westgate Road for a stompin' hot session. Admission on the door is a giveaway four quid!     

'Jake Walk - paralysis or loss of muscle control in the hands and feet on consumption of Jamaican ginger'. Hey! Mr Bartender! Gimme one of those Jake Walks!
