Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

Milestones Jazz Club - The steady beacon which shines for jazz in Lowestoft, first Sunday evening of each month, at The Hotel Hatfield

(I'm grateful to Hil for forwarding me this review of Zoe's recent Lowestoft gig.
Lance.)
I said, “There is, in this writer’s opinion, a great gig coming up that should not be missed.”
Well, it is gratifying to occasionally be proved correct. Zoe Gilby, supported by Andy Champion (bass), Simon Browne (piano) and Brian McAlister (drums), managed with ease to entice out a large number of local jazz fans on a cold ‘most easterly’ night, and this included our contingent of SJF representatives.
All of the first set was taken by Zoe showcasing a selection of her fine repertoire, often very much as a front line jazz instrument, backed up with just Andy Champion on double bass. Not easy to do I imagine, but this lady made it look effortless.
During the second set Zoe was backed by the trio in more conventional style. If you are sorry to have missed this great evening, then watch for further appearances and try to include her in your diary of ‘must have’ dates - we believe you will not be disappointed.
You can hear and learn more via this link - Zoe Gilby.
The next gig at Milestones is on Sun 7th March 2010 when the feature will be the ever popular Jim Mullen Organ Trio.
