Bebop Spoken There

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.

Bratislava Hot Serenaders at Tynemouth


I've heard more hot dance orchestras during the course of the past seven days than I've heard in the past 50 years and it has to be said that the Bratislava Hot Serenaders are probably the best of the lot.
Despite the longest public soundcheck in history, music and noise interference from another stage and below average temperatures BHS delivered the goods.
In particular, the Boswell Sisters - reincarnated as the Serenader Sisters - impressed with their vocal harmonising as well as lookng good.
The soloists, whilst perhaps not out and out improvisers, played with lots of drive and fire in their bellies and the ensembles captured the flavour of the era with tricky saxophone trios and tightly muted brass out choruses.
The drummer even had a gong - how authentic can you get?
