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.

Jazz Esquires @ The Porthole.

Miles Watson (tpt/vcl); Terry Dalton (tmb); Tony Winder (sax/clt); Robin Douthwaite (gtr); Stan Nicholson (bs); Laurie Brown (dms/clt). Brian Lynam (hca).
Can't really say too much about today's session as I was in the bar with James Carr - see previous post.
However, despite being pianoless, they got a good sound on the opener - It Don't Mean a Thing -  and it did have that swing! 
I heard strains of Brian Lynam playing what may have been A White Sport Coat and a Pink Carnation! Don't mock - forget the words - it's a great tune!
One of my favourite LP's is Joe Newman's The Happy Cats - the above photo isn't the picture on the sleeve!

PS: I won a bottle of vino in the raffle!
