Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

Monster Big Band From Up North and I Mean North!

I received the following email from Swedish bandleader Janne Ersson:-
Jazz Festivals, Clubs and to whom it may concern !
The Janne Ersson Tribute Monster Big Band will tour Europe in 2009. This band plays all music that was played by Buddy Rich & Big Band from 1966-1987.
The band also adds a jazz singer to do a tribute to the great Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Mel Tormé and of course the band plays hits like West Side Story Medley, Porgy & Bess Suite, Channel One Suite and so on. This band is available for booking in 2009 with or without a jazz singer so please get in touch for more info and believe me you will find nothing like this in Europe today.
