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.

Tribute to Gerry Mulligan - in Kent!

Memo to JNE. The Baritone Band sounds rather intriguing - if they ever hit the road, Chris, they may well be worthy of a Corner House gig. I'll nip down to the RAFA Club and check them out if you'll pay my expenses. 16 Oct 2009 - The Baritone Band-Tribute to Gerry Mulligan RAFA Club, Building No. 4, Dock Road, Chatham, Kent ME4 4TX Admission £10. 8.30pm start .
The Baritone band featuring Derek Nash, Alan Barnes and Andy Panayi in a tribute to Gerry Mulligan.
Plus Simon Woolf on bass, the outstanding Ralph Salmins (drums) and as a special treat the best trombonist in Europe Mark Nightingale.
Thanks to our Kentish Man, Willie the Lion Smith, for this info.
Lance.
