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.

DJAZZ 2020 cancelled.

(Press release)
We’re sure this will come as no surprise but it is with a heavy heart that we have reached the decision to cancel the 2020 edition of DJAZZ. 
We have spent the last few weeks taking stock of the situation and looking into various options, but have been unable to find a way to deliver the festival the way we’d like it to be.
Like many others, we’ll be taking this time to consider the environment for live music amidst COVID-19. We will bide our time and learn from the music industry’s wider response as we work out what the role of DJAZZ is over the next few months.

Please bear with us and know that we’ll be back as soon as the time is right.
2019 re-cap video (See previous post).
This video documents the third edition of the festival which took place in June 2019... HUGE thanks to Oxley Media for capturing the essence of the festival so beautifully, and to all who attended and played.
We couldn't catch everyone on cam, but it was all lush
