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.

Downing Street Petition.

I'm posting this for the attention of everyone who might have an interest in amending the current ridiculous law that says you need an expensive and complicated Entertainment Licence to put on a jazz band on licensed premises, but can run a zillion-watt disco without any need for one. If you haven't already signed up, please take a minute or two to scan the following and sign up if you agree we have enough regulation without this nonsense. Click Here to read and sign.
Yours for live music with as few complications as possible (PAT testing, Public Liability Insurance, Health & Safety regulations.....aarghh!)
Mike Durham. (This site normally steers clear of anything political - jazz and quality song is our forté. However, in this case I think an exception must be made and all site visitors are asked to read and, if they agree with Mike and the several thousand others who have already signed, to add their support. Lance.)
