Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz 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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

Cullercoats Jazz Party

Mike Durham (tpt/vcl), Iain MacAulay (tmb/vcl), Derek Fleck (alt/clt/bjo), Brian Chester (pno), J.C.Hallam (bs/tmb), Jim McKeown (dms). + John Brindell (vcl), Doris Fenn (bjo), Teresa Armstrong(vcl).
This was one of those fun-packed afternoons that makes Xmas so merry. Hats, santa outfits, sausage rolls, quiche slices, sandwiches and banjos abounded.
Vocals were to the fore with John Brindell (excuse me if I've got his surname wrong) starting the ball rolling with a song that may have been entitled "I Wonder Who's Kissing The Sheikh of Araby?" Next came octegenarium Teresa who followed "You Were Meant For Me" with "Falling in Love Again" complete with Marlene Dietrich outfit and actions.
The band played "Doctor Jazz", Derek Fleck "Stranger on the Shore" and an assortment of part-time percussionists accompanied Iain's vocal on "Enjoy Yourself".
Enjoy myself I did - the sandwiches were nice and fresh.
Lance.
