Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

Will Haywood-Smith, a star in the making, and Lickety Split!

Whilst googling Haywood Smith, an American female author, I came across this site re Will Haywood-Smith - former drummer with The Sage's youth jazz orchestra Jambone.
Seems like the boy's doing good.
Getting back to Haywood Smith, the American writer, I'm currently reading her "The Red Hat Club" and one of the reviews quoted on the back cover describes the novel as "A lickety-split romp." Now, as one of our local bands is named Lickety Split and has its roots in The Sage it does seem a strange coincidence!
