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.

Preview: The Pasadena Roof Orchestra @ Whitley Bay Playhouse

The Pasadena Roof Orchestra are no strangers to the northeast appearing at the Playhouse in Alnwick and the Customs House in South Shields at periodic intervals.

As proof of their popularity, this year's Alnwick gig is sold out already! And, although South Shields is off  their current tour schedule all is not lost as the Whitley Bay Playhouse, just across the river, hosts the band on Sunday (March 1) and the good news is that there are still a few tickets available.

The evening of hot dance music from the 1920s and '30s stomps off at 7:30pm.
