Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

Sinatra, Chuck and Jazz Journal

I picked up this month's Jazz Journal in Fenwick's. It has a lovely interview with veteran bassist Chuck Berghofer.
Chuck, now 73, has played with them all and he had this illuminating comment to make on Sinatra.
"I told Sinatra that I'd played with Zoot Sims and Stan Getz, but that he had the greatest time feeling in the world."
Sinatra's reply was: "I just get a great rhythm section and stay out of the way."
Perhaps Frank should have said, "... and stay out of 'My Way'!"
