Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

Greetings From Manhattan

Dear Lance,
Hope this finds you well and enjoying the summer. I remembered that Mike Durham's jazz festival was going on this past weekend. To be certain, I managed to access your blog and sure enough, got to read all about it. Not as good as actually being there but you made it come alive for this reader. Would have especially enjoyed hearing/seeing Keith Nichols.
Newcastle was a special highlight of my 'nooks and crannies' tour. You folks are hip, hospitable and fun.
Take good care and let's all keep going straight ahead swinging.
warm regards,
Daryl (Sherman).

It's a wonderful world and I'm just walking on air...
