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".

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: Schreer & Garner - June 25

Tomorrow (Thursday) violinists Marie Schreer and John Garner will present a lunchtime LIVE Concerts at Home lockdown set. Marie is a member of the Royal Northern Sinfonia and regularly performs with other classical ensembles. John has performed across the globe on the classical and contemporary music concert stage and on the north east jazz scene he leads his wonderfully named Charkie Parlour quartet and has worked with the Ushaw Ensemble and in a duo with Paul Edis. 

The duo's thirty minute set is part of Newcastle University's LIVE Concerts at Home series. Their programme will include pieces written by James Brady (the London based composer/multi instrumentalist has worked with Jambone at Sage Gateshead), Bela Bartok and a Japanese lullaby. The violinists are from the same household and will be observing social distancing guidelines. The Newcastle University online YouTube concert begins at 1:15pm. When we return to normal (the 'new normal'?) make a point of getting along to one of Marie and John's gigs performing as the duo Mainly Two.
