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.

Radio 3 Sees The Light

Next week, starting Monday Feb 15, BBC's much maligned jazz coverage takes an upturn.
Each weekday they are broadcasting at noon (repeated 22:00hrs), in their 'Composer of the Week' series, a 60 minute program entitled "Bebop".
Now I'm not quite sure how Bebop comes under the heading of COTW but that's the BEEB for you and I for one don't intend to put my head into the mouth of a gift horse.
To cut to the quick it is 5 half-hour programmes devoted to the development of the music we love.
Lance.
