Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

Panama

Our man in Hong Kong, Colin Aitchison, has taken time off from 'knocking 'em dead' at Ned Kelly's Last Stand to send some photos of the 1981 re-creation of the Panama Jazzmen. Pictured in the photo on the left are Stan Martin (clt), Marshall Walker (dms), Dave Hedley (vcl), Joe Errington (tpt), Norman Rudd (pno) & Gordon Solomon (tmb). Click here for more photos including a youthful(ish) Roly Veitch, Clem Avery, Joe McMullen, Ray Jobling, Billy Calboutin, Eric Gamblin, Ray Chester, Uncle Tom Cobbly...
The music stands proclaim them to be the Panama Jazzmen but the faces/names in this picture are more related to the River City Jazzmen of the day - perhaps it was a double header?
Lance.
PS: Colin also sent me a photo of his father Hughie playing at High Farm Club, Wallsend in 1980. Barry Phillips is on piano and Joe Garner on bass. Colin would like to identify the tenor player and the drummer. Can anyone help? Click here to view.
PPS: Latest YouTube video from the China Coast Jazzmen. It may be only "The Saints" but it is worth it for the very last note!
