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!

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.

This is simply "Amazon"

Roly Veitch forwarded me this intriguing, albeit somewhat misleading, link. Bill Evans Plays Banjo.
This slants a whole new light on the opening concert of this year's 10th annual Scarborough Jazz Festival - GARETH WILLIAMS and DAVE GREEN play BILL EVANS and SCOTT La FARO!
Which reminds me that the big weekend by the sea is now only 24 days away. My bucket and spade is already packed - bucket for the beer and spade for the chips.
The tragic death of trumpet player Abram Wilson in June left a massive gap to fill on Saturday afternoon's programme and possibly the Jay Phelps Quartet is the only trumpet-led group that could do it. Jay will pay a musical tribute to Abram that should be both emotional and yet joyous as we remember the good times listening to the late trumpet man.
Lance.
PS: As a special treat the James Birkett Trio will be playing in the bar during the festival.
