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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

Jazzlines Free Gigs: Xhosa Cole Quintet Watch Party

Xhosa Cole (tenor/soprano sax); Francis Tulip (guitar); Will Markham (piano); James Owston (bass); Nathan England Jones (drums).
(By Lance)

Cormac Loane kindly brought this upcoming event to my attention. An event that's saved me the train fare to Birmingham! It's a Watch Party - now that's a new one on me!*

This particular hoolie was scheduled to take place at Birmingham's Town Hall Symphony Hall on April 10 but circumstances have put the mockers on that so instead you can watch it live and for free!

The names will be more than familiar to BSH readers, particularly those who heard the band (with a slightly different line-up at the Ushaw Jazz Festival and The Bridge, Newcastle, last year). Five of the most outstanding young jazz musicians, not just in Birmingham, but throughout the UK and, once travel becomes more viable, surely far beyond.

And, you will have a front row seat - bring it on!

*Watch Parties were launched by Facebook in 2018 as a new way for people to watch videos on Facebook together in real time. Once a Watch Party is started, participants can watch videos, live or recorded, and interact with one another around them in the same moment.
