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.

Warners' Original Album Series.

One of the better CD deals at the moment is Warner Brothers' Original Album series. These are 5 x CD packages comprising classic albums from Atlantic/Warners dating back to the 1950s.
The latest batch comprises:
John Coltrane - Giant Steps; Coltrane Jazz; My Favourite Things; Coltrane Plays The Blues; Coltrane's Sound.
-----
Ornette Coleman - The Shape of Jazz to Come; Change of the Century; This is Our Music; Free Jazz; Ornette!
 -----
Herbie Mann - At The Village Gate; Do The Bossa Nova With Herbie Mann; Nirvana (w. Bill Evans' Trio); Muscle Shoals Nitty Gritty; Hold on, I'm Comin'.
-----
Al Jarreau - We Got By; Glow; All Fly Home; This Time; Breakin' Away.
-----
Antonio Carlos Jobim - The Wonderful World of ACJ; Love, Strings and Jobim; A Certain Mr. Jobim; Urubu; Terra Brasilis.
-----
What can I say? The equivalent of 25 classic LPs that, give or take a couple, should be in every collection. Personally I was delighted to get my hands on Coltrane Plays the Blues. It's long been on my wish list and here it is.
Amazing that all these years later Ornette Coleman sounds almost mainstream - almost!
Al Jarreau, Jobim, Herbie Mann - unbeatable at their craft.
I've left the best till last - you can pick them up on Amazon for £6 - £12 each.
Maybe even cheaper elsewhere!
Lance.
