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.

Vieux Carré Jazzmen @ Corner House

Mike Durham (tpt/vcl), Lawrence McBriarty (tmb), Barry Soulsby (clt/vcl), Brian Bennett (bjos), Brian Sibbald (bs), Fred Thompson (dms/vcl).
Circumstances decreed that I could only stay for the first set nevertheless, it was an enjoyable enough experience with Barry doing a passable vocal on "Home" - once he'd cottoned on to which notes went up and which went down. No such problems with his clarinet solo which was excellent.
Fred sang an unforgetable number - the title of which escapes me - and Lawrence blew a fine shouting trombone chorus on the same.
Mike pressed all the right valves on "Bugle Boy March" and Brian B tonight had two banjos with him. This is probably because he is doing so many gigs he fears that one of the instruments may get worn out.
Joking aside, nobody does it better than these guys do on a Monday night in Heaton.
