Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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.

Chilli Jam

Dave Weisser (tpt/vcl), Darren Grainger (ten), Barry Ashcroft (pno), Mick Danby (bs), Eric Stutt (dms). + Harley Johnson (pno), Solly Bashiri (dms), Peggy ? (vcl), Lance Liddle (ten).
Some delicate quartet numbers kicking off with "Alone Together" and inc. "Green Dolphin St." and "Au Privave" before a newcomer, Peggy - second name not given - sang "Nice Work If You Can Get It" and "The Girl from Ipanema." Look forward to hearing her again.
Darren arrived to fill out the front line and solo powerfully on Horace Silver's "Song For My Father" as well as the MJQ classic, "Django". Dave also blew some nice lines.
After the break the jam session saw Solly B on drums, Harley J on piano and a strolling player called Lance on tenor.
Numbers included "Blue Bossa", "Watermelon Man", "Beautiful Love", "Moanin'" and "Blue Monk" - the atonal possibilities of the latter tune were explored, not necessarily by intention. The infusion of a double tempo explosion by Eric and Harley gave it a lift. This was Harley Johnson in Harley Davidson mode (sorry Harley but it had to come!)
Throughout the set Darren blew 'bootifully' with Mick sound as a pound on bass.
Dave , of course, was his inimitable self both singing and playing. "Close Your Eyes" à la Arthur Prysock put him ahead of the game.
Interesting night.
Lance.
