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.

Rosie's

Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Jim McBriarty (clt), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Tommy Graham (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
I had to miss The Chilli last night because I'd got The Fever. This morning, the ague had subsided but so had the lights on my automobile which meant a look under the bonnet. This of course brought the neighbours out in force each offering their own pearls of wisdom none of which proved to be very helpful. The problem, we decided was neither in the fuse box nor in the bulbs - after all two bulbs wouldn't go simultaneously would they?
Eventually, we gave up and I took it to a specialist in car electrics whose lair was within walking distance of Rosie Malone's where, as is their wont on Thursday afternoons, the Maine Street Jazzmen were strutting.
I managed half an hour in the company of Gosling the Guitar (ret.) and heard some good bouncy dixie on such numbers as "I'm Beginning to See The Light", "My Mother's Eyes" and "Swannee River" plus vocals from Olive on "Jeepers Creepers" (inc. the verse) as well as "Swing That Music".
This took things to the end of the first set wherupon my phone rang.
It was the car people.
My car was ready.
What was the problem?
Two bulbs had blown simultaneously!
Lance.
