Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/July 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.

Monday Date

Russell has kindly directed to me to an exciting new series on Radio 2.
Starting this Monday, October 19, at 11:30 pm, Curtis Stigers, no less, hosts a program detailing the rise to fame of Benny Goodman.
The six part series includes archive interviews with such as Peggy Lee, Buddy Greco, Artie Shaw and Lionel Hampton. Dankworth's in there too.
Should be well worth twiddling the cat's whisker on your crystal set. Alternatively BBC iplayer will do the biz.
Earlier on 2, the BBC Big Band do it at 10:00 pm whilst over on Radio 3 there's a lunchtime concert (1:00 pm) from Wigmore Hall by the trio Arthurs, Hoiby, Ritchie who perform a variety of compositions by New Generation artist Tom Arthurs.
In the evening, Jazz on 3 present a gig by US Sax player Darius Jones and his trio recorded live in New York. This goes out at 11:15 clashing with the Benny Goodman program on 2 - nice one BBC!
Lance.
