Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/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".

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.

Music While You Drive

This snippet was on one of the early morning TV news programmes. Apparently a survey recently carried out indicated that drivers listening to Jazz whilst driving are more likely to be breaking the speed limit. The reason given being that because of the complexity of the music it requires more analytical thought and the driver might not realise that he/she is speeding.
Those listening to pop/rock, the survey said, are most likely to have an accident and the safest drivers are those who listen to classical music.
So think carefully before slotting that Ellington CD into the player it could mean 3 points on your licence - unless of course it's his version of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite which will presumably slow you down.
Lance.
PS: I did once get done for speeding so maybe the survey has some merit!

So what were those Japanese guys who smashed up their Ferraris listening to then? The Thing's latest album? Evan Parker?
