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".

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.

Shaping the future of The Jazz.Coop and The Globe

Today (30 April) is International Jazz Day. It is also exactly six years since The Globe was bought by a cooperative dedicated to jazz.

Normally Jazz.Coop would be holding a party to celebrate but these are not normal times. The Globe is closed and we have no idea when, or even if, it might reopen.

The pandemic has changed everything. The Globe will have to adapt if it is to survive and flourish in the new post-pandemic world.

Over the coming weeks the board of Jazz.Coop will be considering how The Globe might operate in the future. They are asking for all people who care about The Globe to get involved in discussing various options, taking decisions and making things happen.

If you are interested in taking part in the consultations please email chair1@jazz.coop. Please use the subject ‘Shaping the Future’ and please send your message in the next seven days.

Most of the options for continuing to put on jazz gigs, workshops and jam sessions at The Globe will require either more volunteers or greater investment or both. If only a few people respond to this appeal, it would severely restrict the options and could delay the reopening of The Globe.
Dave Parker 
(Co-Chair, on behalf of the board of Jazz.Coop.)
