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 Dean Stockdale Trio @ Hexham Jazz Club (March 17)

Next Tuesday (17 March) Hexham Jazz Club presents the Dean Stockdale Trio in concert. The Fox Inn's regulars are in for a treat as pianist Stockdale's swinging Oscar Peterson-inspired set will feature two of the best in the business - bassist extraordinaire Andy Champion and the exceptionally talented young drummer Abbie Finn. Expect GASbook gems, modern jazz standards and, with a bit of luck, one or two of Stockdale's own compositions*. 


Hexham Jazz Club's gigs are made possible thanks to generous on-the-night donations by its many supporters. Do get along to enjoy an evening of top class jazz. Your attendance will help secure the future of jazz in the Northumberland market town. 8:30 start, two sets, 10:30 finish.

Dean Stockdale's album Origin is well worth acquiring. It could be that Dean has a handful of copies left (the trio recording features Gavin Barras and Adam Dawson) and he'll have them with him on the night. You could buy two copies - one for yourself and one to give to a loved one at Christmas!
