Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

Jam Session at the Jazz Café

Claire Kelly (vcl), Pete Gilligan (pno), Paul Grainger (bs), Mark Williams, Matthew Office (gtr), Eric Stutt (dms).
I shudda stayed in bed!
No reflection on the music but the dreaded lurgi had took control and I was a bit zombified.
Not sufficiently stricken to not appreciate Whisper Not, All Blues by Matthew, Pete etc nor Claire's take on Summertime and the lovely version of I've Got The World on a String which, after some hesitancy all round eventually copped.
Claire finished off with West Coast Blues - a dangerous choice given that all the local big-hiitters have put their brand on it. Nevertheless, Claire did okay plus there was a belting solo by Mark (pictured) and Pete.
Fiona and Stu arrived carrying horns and Lindsay - whose birthday it was - was said to be on her way but the dreaded chest infection was getting worse - thank God I'm not Dolly Parton! and, reluctantly, I left - desperate for some TLC.
Not one of the things Nexus offer to travellers...
Lance.
