Bebop Spoken There

Dick Katz: "Carmen [McRae] would say some pretty caustic things but, so what? There aren't any people who don't talk caustically to each other at some time unless they're Mother Teresa." - (Lesley Gourse: Carmen McRae Miss Jazz - Billboard Books 2001, 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".

Dave's Dialogue

Just a little update to let you know about the upcoming appearance at our Wednesday night Chilli session of a new line-up, the Katherine Stone Quartet. Katherine is a jazz vocalist, and her quartet is made up of herself, Alan Law on keyboards, Mick Danby on bass, and Steve Doyle on drums.
The night they are scheduled to appear is Wednesday, 2 May, 2012. Hope to see you there!
----- 
In other news, I hear from drummer Michael Howard that next week's Chili session, with special guests the Blue Jazz Quintet, will also feature some of the participants from the Sage jazz vocal course, the names of whom are not known to me, but we're looking forward to hearing some new talent on that night, 18 April.
----- 
Tomorrow night's Take It To The Bridge sees the return to these shores from Florida of our friend Ray Truscott, on 6-string bass, and the first appearance with us of Daniel Reid on drums. Thanks to Lance and also to Paul Grainger, our bassist of a few weeks ago, for Daniel's phone number! Also, tenor saxophonist Paul Gowling has been dazzling us most weeks, and his presence is most welcome, since he usually brings some new material to play.
Dave.
