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.

A Seeker of Wisdom & Truth

(From the August/September Jazztimes). Lou Donaldson, listening to a track by free jazz saxophonist David Binney...
" ...That's got nothing to do with jazz at all. They say he's searching, but I know what he's searching for - a saxophone teacher. That's what he needs."

I did read Lou Donaldson's remarks. I didn't know he was such a vitriolic so and so! As it happens I've heard David Binney in concert on Jazz on 3 and he can play.

What he maybe needs is a good banjo player to set him on the straight and narrow.
