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.

Art For Laurie's Sake

If I should fall in love again... I'm sure it will be with Laurie Pepper, widow of Art Pepper - one of the great musicians of the last century.
Reading the album notes that Laurie penned for the recent release of previously undiscovered live Stuttgart recordings from Art's final European tour in 1981 I'm quite overwhelmed by the depth of feeling that emerges.
It is like as though a happy ending has been added to Straight Life.
Check them out here and listen to samples from the album.
Art really was the greatest and so are you Laurie for perpetuating his memory.
Lance.
