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.

Connie Haines R.I.P.

Former band singer Connie Haines passed away on 22 Sept. aged 87; outlived by her 109 year old mother. I remember Connie as the singer who duetted with Sinatra on a Tommy Dorsey side that had a memorable title - "Snootie Little Cutie". I'm sure we've all known or met someone who fitted that description!
Once again I'm indebted to RC, our man on the graveyard shift, for the sad news. Click here for Guardian obituary.
