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".


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.

Dutch pianist/singer, Pia Beck, died Nov. 26 aged 84. Her lifelong partner Margo died in June.
I recall hearing the Pia Beck Trio on Radio Hilversum in the 1950s and finding her to be a fine Shearing type pianist. I don't remember her singing so much back then but this YouTube clip reveals her to be no slouch. In fact check her out on 'Tube" there's a few examples of her talent - a very engaging personality.
Although she lived in Spain for many years she seems to be still held in high regard in her homeland, Holland.
May she rest in piece.
