Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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!

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!
