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.

Tonight @ The Customs House, South Shields...

...promises to be an evening of great music with the Customs House Big Band and popular singer Ruth Lambert. The emphasis is on 'Music From The Shows' which means they have just about every great song ever written to choose from (hopefully this will not include ALW!)
Starts at 7:30pm.
Lance.
PS: Talking big bands, I've just added my doubtful skills to the Bright Street Big Band who are Sunderland based and rehearse every 2nd, 3rd and 4th Tuesday. They are currently low on trombone players so any slide-men out there looking for a reading blow let me know and I'll put you in touch.
