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".

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.

What's in a Name?

For reasons best known to themselves Horn Dogs, that excellent 8 piece New Orleans Marching Funk Brass Band, has changed its name to The Northern Monkey Brass Band.
I'm sure there is some deep underlying logic behind this - is there a band of the same name (Horn Dogs) in New Orleans threatening to sue? Even so it isn't a name that grabs me - I suppose Monkey rhyming with funky might have some PR possibilities but sorry Graham I'm going to have to wait for this one to grow on me.
Mind you, I said the same about Gerry Dorsey when he changed his name and look how he ended up!
