Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

Chicago Stompers at Tynemouth


It seems like hot dance music from the 1920s is the thing these days! The Chicago Stompers from Italy gave an al fresco (no relation to al capone) performance at the Mouth of the Tyne Festival in Tynemouth. Like last week's Red Hot Rhythmakers they were young and not totally male. I'll re-phrase that; there were two girls in the band (see photo left) Veronica, pink dress and vocals, and Vanessa, tenor sax, clarinet and ukulele. The girls also Charlestoned with style.
Good period entertainment
