Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

If I Were A Bell-Becky Kilgore Group


That wonderful vocalist Becky Kilgore is appearing at the Norwich Jazz Party next May. This strikes me as an opportunity for promoters to grab her whilst she's over here. I'd love to hear Becky live and, as Norwich is a bit far for me, perhaps some of our Northern jazz organisations could come up with some ideas?

She's great.

Two of my all time favourite CDs feature Becky. 'Remembering Maxine' with the Bobby Gordon Trio (Bobby a unique, impish clarinetist who doesn't play a lot of notes because he doesn't need to) and 'I saw Stars' featuring, among some great players, the best pure acoustic guitar rhythm playing I've ever heard - by Bucky Pizzarelli. And for delightful, warm, sincere singing well, what more can you say.

I too have those albums as well as a duo set with Dave Frishberg all fabulous.

Yes she is so engaging, her voice is clear as a bell too! That next band number at the fade out "I'll know" is a winner too
