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.

Multi-platform jazz

(By Russell)

Today (Saturday 28) J to Z (Radio 3, 5:00pm) presents Kenny Barron in session and at midnight Corey Mwamba's Freeness features music from Byron Wallen's new album Portrait. Over on Radio 4 Yazz Ahmed is a guest on Loose Ends (6:15pm). And a special treat awaits at seven o'clock when trumpeter Enrico Tomasso streams a second Facebook live performance - Friday evening's live stream focussed on Louis Armstrong, this evening's subject is sure to be one of the great names - don't miss it!  

Tomorrow (Sunday) Alyn Shipton's Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3, 4:00pm) is essential listening. You could try Radio Tyneside's Geordie Hour (5:00pm, 93.6 FM) presented by Gary Hogg. It is a rather unique programme in that all of the music played has a Tyneside connection. Invariably the award-winning programme includes a jazz track. If you're a jazz musician living on, or with a link to, Tyneside why not send a CD to Mr Hogg (www.radiotyneside.co.uk)? The chances are he'll play a track to a local and online worldwide audience. Finally, at six o'clock, be sure to listen online to Mike Dixon's Jazz Time on Aycliffe Radio (www.ayclifferadio.co.uk).
