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".

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.

Elaine Binney & The Jazz Rascals @ Durant Hall

Elaine Binney (vln), Peter Skeen (gtr/vcl), Keith Mills (bs), Jae Brooks (dms).
Remember the name - The Jazz Rascals. Rascals they may be but they have the potential to be the hottest band around.
This was their first ever gig and they used it to make a live recording which should be out in April.
I'm not going to elaborate too much - Ann Alex was observed making copious notes which I am sure will appear here shortly - instead I'll just say that Elaine and her Rascals are wonderful.
If you couldn't make it then you may have missed out on an event that could become part of North-East Jazz folklore.
And Bebop Spoken Here was there...
Lance.
