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.

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcl), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Tommy Graham (dms).
Usual afternoon of fun-filled jazz with Olive in good voice having just broken the speed limit on "Just Friends" - it worked! "Back in Your Own Backyard" was taken at a more sedate tempo. Herbie worked out on "Sweet Lorraine"
whilst Jim's piece of resistance was "Nobody's Sweetheart".
Usual powerpiano from Malcolm with Tommy and Alan driving it all along.
Olive sang "When Your Smiling" but, having just learned of the death of Darren Grainger I wasn't in smiling mode. This has been a week and a half - two deaths and a heart attack...
Lance.
