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".

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.

Happy Homecoming for Herbie Hudson Maine St. Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's.

Joe Errington (tpt/vcl); Herbie "Turk" Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl) Gavin Lee (clt/alt); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Hunble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
The sound of surprise was to the fore today at Rosie's with Turk Hudson back from his Guinness Book of Records attempt (longest holiday ever). Our man was in fine form on slide trombone, vocal and Hohner 270. However, the big surprise was seeing Joe Errington on trumpet. The ex River City horn man was over here on vacation and slotted in nicely with the MSJ Gavin Lee blew some really earthy clarinet and impressed - his alto playing hit the spot too. The rhythm section were on the money and Olive was in good voice on Swing That Music, When You're Smiling and Doctor Jazz. Our girl also displayed political correctness when she sang Some of These Days changing Big fat mama to little sweet mama - Olive sure ain't no big fat mama!
Lance.
PS: Jim McBriarty is in and out of hospital with tests looming. Best wishes to you Jim.
