Bebop Spoken There

Georgia Cécile: "For me, whether it's an instrumentalist or a singer, they have to be telling a story." - (JazzWisee 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

11,635 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 770 of them this year alone and, so far, 34 this month (July 9).

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.

Wylam Songbook Course Fully Booked

Earlier this year Ron Guariento informed me of his proposed  Course on the Great American Songbook (The Gasbook as we affectionately call it) and appealed for interested parties to get in touch.
Well I'm pleased to say that many parties were interested and  the course, which starts on Oct.16 for 5 weeks, is now fully subscribed.
However, if you've procrastinated and missed out, Ron is hoping to run another one next year looking at songwriters and lyricists other than the "Big Five".
Watch this space.
As an afterthought, we've got this course at Wylam, Jazz sessions at Blaydon and Hexham and Sunniside so maybe those 'hicks out in the sticks ain't hicks at all!'
Lance (of Hebburn).
