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.

Harold Beckett 1935-2010

LondonJazz has announced the death of trumpet player Harry Beckett. A regular visitor to the North East over the years he was a much loved figure. He died today after a stroke on Tuesday. Truly a pivotal player in contemporary UK jazz.
In the picture on the left Harry was with Dudu Pukwana at a Corner House gig back in the 1980's. Other nights included concerts with Barbara Thompson and other forward thinkers of the time. Even as recently as this year there was talk of a Tyneside gig.
Sadly, not to be.
RIP Harold Beckett.
Lance.
