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.

A "So Rare" visit from Mike Bird - Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's.

Olive Rudd (vcl); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Mike Bird (clt); George Richardson (pno); Alan rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Mike Bird, the Buddy de Francophile from Wakefield, arrived for one of his all too few visits via, he tells me,  Lands End - Don't ask me!
Appropriately he was featured on the old Jimmy Dorsey hit So Rare. Given that it isn't a number Herbie does too often, I can only say that Mr Hudson excelled on both 'bone and harp. Of course it was Mike's baby and he too did the number justice.
Olive gave us a couple of dreams - Wrap Your Troubles in them and Meet Me Tonight in their own land. Doctor Jazz and All of Me were also given the Olive Oil.
George played some delightful piano throughout and excellent digital vibes. He also played some banjo and brass sounds. As I said, he played some delightful piano throughout and excellent digital vibes! A few bass solos from Alan kept the lower end alive whilst Mike Humble's work on the most minimalist of kits brings to mind the parable of the five loaves and two fishes.
Lance.
PS: Look out for Mike Bird and family Xmas week.
