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.

Tyneside Talent

(Report by Russell) 

Today's edition (Sunday January 12) of Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3) featured a fine selection of numbers. From the opening Bei Mir Bist Du Schön (Benny Goodman) to It's About That Time (Bitches Brew-era Miles Davis) Alyn Shipton introduced classic material and lesser known compositions. Oliver Nelson (Stolen Moments) to Andy Sheppard and Espen Eriksen to Oscar Peterson to Johnny Dodds. And, thanks to a Darlington listener, proudly taking its place in the list...Paul Edis' Ushaw Ensemble (A Shepherd from Melrose)! Listen again via JRR's page on the Beeb's website.  

Radio Tyneside's award-winning programme The Geordie Hour followed JRR. An hour of music from north east born and bred and/or resident musicians is what Gary Hogg's programme is all about. This week's edition opened with a couple of bands familiar to Billy Bootlegger's patrons. First, rockabilly outfit Miss Mary and the Mr Rights then Americana from Guilded Thieves

The Doonans (from Hebburn, South Tyneside) with their version of House of the Rising Sun (recorded before the Animals scored a huge chart hit) then Bob Fox with The Hush put three local jazz musicians in the spotlight (Garry LinsleyNeil HarlandPaul Smith). There is always something of interest on Hogg's programme. Listen again on Wednesday evening (Jan 15, 7:00pm). Tune to 93.6 FM or online at: www.radiotyneside.co.uk
