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.

Long Range Weather Report

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) under the direction of Tommy Smith take on board some big names next February - Composer/arranger Vince Mendoza, saxist Bob Mintzer and former Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine (pictured left) to work with the band in a tribute to the legendary jazz/rock outfit Weather Report. Although the dates are all north of the border a trip to Edinburgh is a viable proposition for any interested parties in the north-east and beyond.
For more details of the project which is sponsored by  Creative Scotland, Grasshoppers Hotel and Arts and Business Scotland go to http://www.snjo.co.uk/index.php?id=424.
