Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (DownBeat 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".

COVID-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.

Hello Dolly Peel

This photo appeared in today's Shields Gazette. Fred Rowe is on long model cornet with Harry on banjo. The venue is the Dolly Peel on Commercial Road. Can anyone recall Harry's surname?  Sadly, both Fred and Harry are long gone.
Lance.
PS: The pub was, and possibly still is, one of the best real alers in South Shields.

That looks like Harry Blakey on banjo - he also played with Mike's West Jesmond Rhythm Kings at one time.

The very man! Thanks Patti, I sold him many a banjo string - well, er, maybe two. Big mate of Dickie Blackwood - trumpet player with the Heritage Hall Stompers.
