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.

Clark Terry

I'm sure that I'm less informed than those at the sharp end, but I was greatly shocked to read in July's Jazz Journal, the fact, that at the age of 91, Clark Terry has had both legs amputated.
Living the "American Dream", he has generated enormous medical bills and a particular expense not covered by his insurance is the 24/7 attention he requires from professional carers.
Can we who love his music, help him in the same unselfish manner in  which he quietly helped Buck Clayton during the last years of his life  
Let's show the guy he is remembered with affection and gratitude for the music he has given us,
Derrick Cogger.
