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.

Blues (For the Fisherman) To Be There

Laurie Pepper put this out on Facebook... "If you're in L.A. on October 9th: Fred Seldon will be playing Art Pepper with Milcho Leviev & maybe the rest of Art's wonderful '80's band at a huge jazz event out in the Santa Monica area on Friday. It's a whole Kenton a...lumni, nostalgia thing.It's put on by the L.A. Jazz Institute http://lajazzinstitute.org/ I'm scanning and sending a bunch of music to them. I'm going to have a table there selling books and albums. Please come out to The Sheraton Four Points in Santa Monica and say hi!" Sounds good - shame it's just an ocean and a continent too far for me. Still, over here we've got Ruth and the Customs House Big Band at South Shields or the On The Outside Festival on the inside of Gateshead Old Town Hall so it should still be a 'good' Friday although, which ever gig I choose, a part of me will be in Santa Monica. Lance.
