Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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".

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.

Papa's Got A Brand New Haircut

I sensed tonight, in the Arms of Chillingham, was going to be different. Firstly Dave had had a haircut and trimmed his beard; an action which in itself was almost as revolutionary as pianist Barry playing bass guitar which he did very competently tonight. Secondly, that brilliant guitarist Mark Williams was once more on the stand and thirdly, I won the raffle; a CD of some moderate interest.
The band sounded good and got even better as the night progressed and sitters-in, sat in. These included Nicola on baritone sax (lovely big fat sound), Daniel on guitar, the inevitable David Carnegie - on piano tonight - and a guy called John, didn't catch his surname, on tenor who blew up an absolute storm on Quincy's"Killer Joe". David C and Daniel also went slightly crazy on this number.
Possibly the best session since I started dropping by.
