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".

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.

Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Tommy Graham (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
"Marching Through Georgia" saw Herbie singing the chorus seemingly from "Atlanta to the sea" as well as playing a rumbustuous trombone solo. Jim and Malcolm also chipped with admirable solos - General Robert E.Lee would have been proud of them, Sherman's dashing Yankee boys less. Tommy Graham drummed authentically - his finale was reminiscent of Stan Freeberg's "The Yellow Rose of Texas."
The ebullient Maine Street Men followed up with another Herbie vocal, this time on "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone". Herbie sang it with a degree of angst and I wondered if they were announcing their departure - perhaps to 'bring the jubilee' elsewhere. However, their were no such hidden agendas and the engagement continues to be ongoing - since April to be precise - and so it should. Where else can you listen to jazz in South Shields on a Thursday afternoon. As a matter of further interest real ales are currently £2 a pint on Thursdays.
Back to the music and Olive, as ever the icing on the cake, gave out with "All of Me". "Swing That Music" and "Keeping Out of Mischief Now" came later - the gal was in good voice today.
An enjoyable, albeit occasionally predictable, afternoon.
Lance.
