Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/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.

Jazz Jubilee.

(By Lance).
This being Jubilee weekend it seems appropriate to me to list those jazz people with titles. That they were mainly either self imposed or created by the media is irrelevant. Below is my choice followed by Wikipedia's selection. You may care to add your own.
Empress: Bessie Smith (Empress of the Blues)
Kings: Oliver, Curtis, Pleasure (I & II). Louis Prima (King of the Swingers).
Queen: Dinah Washington (Queen of the Blues).
Princes: Lasha, Robinson.
Dukes: Ellington, Jordan, Pearson.
Count: Basie.
Earls: Warren, Hines, Grant, Klugh.
Baroness: Pannonica de Koenigswarter.
Sir John Dankworth.
Sir George Shearing.
Dame Cleo Laine.
