Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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.

Leaflets or Litter?

Just about every organisation distributes leaflets to promote their events - its an essential form of marketing. Now, according to The Guardian (June 30, p.8), 45 local authorities including Newcastle require that you buy a licence to allow you to hand out your leaflets. Jazz Café's Keith Crombie who unsuccessfully took the Council to court argued that "...the regulations infringed his rights to freedom of speech..." Keith had to buy a licence.
In Leicester a licence costs £103 plus a further £26 per distributer per day.
Paradoxically local authorities themselves produce a massive number of leaflets and pamphlets which surely leads to more of the litter they are supposedly trying to suppress!
