Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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.

Ellington's Nutcracker Suite, the Aussie outback, Chicago's Jazz Age Art and Aycliffe Radio

Tonight's Radio 3 in Concert at 7:30pm presents the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by David Danzmayr. The NOW can be heard performing Duke Ellington's Nutcracker Suite in a concert recorded during January. As the joke goes...more Ellington sugar rum cherry than Tchaikovsky sugar plum fairy!

Later in the week on Radio 3 (Saturday, midnight) Corey Mwamba's Freeness delves into improvisatory music's relationship with the Australian outback. Also featured is a duo set recorded by saxophonist Mette Rasmussen and guitarist Julien Desprez. 

Sunday evening's Shades of Black: The Art and Genius of Archibold Motley Jr (Radio 3, 6:45pm) could be interesting. This Sunday Feature documentary strand looks at an influential figure in the visual arts world - will jazz feature? Tune in to find out. 


Mike Dixon's Aycliffe Radio Jazz Time programme is broadcast at six o'clock every Sunday. Recently Ray Sams and Tony Eales have been Mike's studio guest talking about their love of jazz and the local jazz scene. This coming Sunday (Feb 9) the Tees Valley Jazzmen's Keith Belton will be in the spotlight. Tune in online at: www.ayclifferadio.co.uk
