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".


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.

Thanks and all the best Lance.
Congratulations on what was a great idea in the first place and for bringing it to where it is now. Fantastic.

Well done on the blog Lance, and all the best for the forthcoming year. I would also like to thank you for the recommended reading material for Xmas that you suggested to my other/better half. She duly followed your advice and it has been invaluable and interesting reading while I have been recovering from swine flu over the last week or so. Thanks again.

Liz said...

All the best Lance, you know my sentiments, you do have one helluva site here...well done & power to your elbow in the coming year

Ann Alex said...

Lance, Thanks for the appreciation, I enjoy the writing I do for the blog. Perhaps by next year the blog will be internationally famous, or is it already?

Lance said...

Well Ann, Ned Kelly's Last Stand in Hong Kong isn't exactly Tyne and Wear and nor is New Jersey or New York. We also have links with sites in Sweden and Switzerland as well as a couple of ex-pats in Brittany so I guess we are internationally known if not quite famous.

Very miserably down with a chest infection, I cheered myself up to come on here for my daily feed. I wish you a very healthy and very interesting new year for your writing implement, Labour o' love Lance, Sarah.

Sarah, I've just returned early from the Jazz Café for the very same reason. I too am chestified and taking doses of Well's Bombadier to combat it.
There seems to be a bug going round - that easy excuse people roll out for any ailment!
