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.

News Flash Resignation!

Dr. Nicola Weaver, that fine sax player, has parted company (amicably) with Budvivar - no doubt to develop her free-lance connections around town as they used to say in the Melody Maker many years ago.
I'm assured that the fact that this announcement arrived on the same day that Gordon Brown jumped ship is purely coincidental and that if Gordon wants to blow baritone and alto with Budvivar he will have to be democratically elected by the good burghers of Budvivarland.
Lance.
