Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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!

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.

RIP Fritz Pauer

I must here confess I was unfamiliar with the work of Austrian jazz pianist Fritz Pauer who died on July 1 but when no less a person than singer Sheila Jordan paid the following tribute on Facebook I knew he must be something else and he was.
"I sure am in shock over Fritz Pauer's passing. What a great guy he was and what a fantastic musician. He was so caring and such a wonderful human being to be around. He made my stay in Graz less lonely for New York. I will miss you my friend. We were going to have a gig sometime next year for Axelle at Jazzland. We will have to move it to the heavens sometime in the future my friend". Sheila.
Listen to him here duetting with altoist Sheila Cooper.
Fritz Pauer was 69.
Obituary.
