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.

A Graphic Thought on Listening Through The Noise.

The Press release from OUP re Joanna Demers book - Listening Through The Noise: The Aesthetics of Experimental Electronic Music produced a number of reactions from our readers.
Ann Alex posted her reasoned arguments against Ms Demers' theorem in an earlier post whilst here, Bill Shaw took a graphic look.
As for me - I just wish the council worker using the pneumatic drill would go about his labours in the key of C, Bb or F when I'm practising.

Lance and Bill, I have a terrible confession to make, I love the sound of fax machines when they are dialling the number. I told my colleagues this (when I worked in an office in a previous life) and they thought I was crackers. But I'm not about to start singing like a fax, and that's a fact.

Why not sing like a fax rather than be just another (f)email singer?
