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.

Situations Vacant


Mike Cunningham of Hexham Jazz Club has issued the following statement on Facebook:

"Hi all, unfortunately I won't be able to continue organising the Jazz nights at the Fox. I will be there for the remaining gigs already booked, so we will have Zoë Gilby on October 8th, Not Now Charlie on November 12th and the Tyne Valley Big Band on December 10th. If anyone fancies taking over, let me know or come down for a chat at one of the upcoming gigs
Cheers Mike."

Sad news indeed. We wish Mike all the best and hope someone will step in and take over.
