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".


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.

Silver Threads among the Gold - Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's.

Herbie Hudson (tmb); Jim McBriarty (clt/alt); George Richardson )pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Tomorrow night, at the Musicon Durham Jazz Festival, we have the Five Pieces of Silver. This afternoon, as seen in the photo, we have SIX pieces of silver (and counting!
And not a Horace (Silver) in sight!
I suppose the elderly audience provides a comfort zone but really the band don't need it. The music swings along with Olive's Sentimental Journey worth a pint or two of anyone's Euros.
Herbie played Misty (on the mouthie) - maybe it was a request. Sounded good as did Jim's alto solo. It was a good afternoon with plenty of convivial company including Julia who flew in from Farnborough and bemoaned the fact they didn't have any jazz in her locality.
