Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".

Postage

11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).

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.

Battle of the Blues

The bands going forward for each regional heat of the UK’s ‘New Brunswick Battle of the Blues’ have now been announced and the organisers are now turning their attention to ensuring each event is a huge success. The response has been overwhelming and the quality extremely high so we can promise a great night out at each of the heats for music lovers. Heats are being held in the second half of January in Southampton, Billericay, Beeston (Notts), Chorley (Lancs) and Glasgow.
Now although there aren't any local heats there are local bands involved.
At Glasgow we have The Bushwackers from Chester-le-Street and at Burnley, Lee Bates and Billy Newton from Gateshead and Chris James from Carlise.
So let's hear it for the boys and hope they reach the final in Canada.
