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.

Elina Duni & Rob Luft Play For Jazz.Coop and The Globe


(Press release)
Sunday 17 May, 8pm (‘doors open’ 7.45pm)
Online performance on Facebook and YouTube

We can’t run gigs at The Globe currently but this WON’T STOP US bringing you the very best new music! We are pleased to announce the third of our exclusive livestream concerts.

On Sunday 17 May at 8pm we’re delighted to be able to bring you an exclusive and intimate concert by Elina Duni and Rob Luft, which we will stream live to you through Facebook and YouTube.

For this new project, called Songs of Love and Exile, Swiss-Albanian jazz singer Elina Duni is joined by guitarist and BBC New Generation Jazz Artist Rob Luft, one of the rising stars of London’s flourishing contemporary jazz scene. Luft’s playing incorporates echoes of West African high-life, Celtic folk and textural minimalism. His joyously original sound finds an ideal counterpart in Elina Duni’s vocals. Together, they take us on a journey through timeless folk songs which still resonate so truly today, as well as playing their co-written original material about contemporary issues facing us all.

Check out videos of this amazing duo here:

So that Elina and Rob can get paid, we’d like to ask you to pay a small ‘entrance fee’, which we recommend should be £5. If you are able to pay a bit more this will be really welcome at this time when gig income for musicians has completely stopped and is unlikely to return in the very near future.

TO ATTEND THE GIG PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:
1. Make a donation via the following link. https://bit.ly/3dwRxyB Donate what you can afford, £5 is the suggested minimum.
2. When we have received notification of your donation we will send you an email with instructions on how to view the livestream on both Facebook and YouTube. Please note that it may take several hours for us to respond.
3. Please do not leave it to the last minute to access Facebook or YouTube. ‘Doors open’ at 7,45pm on Sunday 17 May to give you time to check your set up and get comfortable.
