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.

Jazz Café Moments.

I couldn't make it on Saturday night but those who did tell me that Debra Milne's new band - Debra (vcl); Judith Thompson (vln); Matt Office (gtr); Ivan Scutt (bs); Rob Bates (dms) - gave an audience pleasing performance. Even old grumps proprieter Keith conceded the band a nod of approval!
Today was a rather lower profile session as many of the key players were on Splinter duty down in deepest Stockton.
However, the aforementioned Matt Office along with, Ray Truscott (bass), Stuart Findon (piano), Fiona Littlewood (vcl/ten), Doug Fielder (ten) were on hand to goose Fi's vocal along.
Doxy, You Don't Know What Love Is and Now's The Time a.k.a. Hucklebuck were a few of the tunes that lingered longer with me as I rode the 27 bus home.
Lance.
PS: Fi also blew some tasty tenor.
