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.

Vote in the 26th British Jazz Awards.

It's time to vote in the 26th Jazz Awards organised by Big Bear Records and Jazz Rag magazine.
To take part and vote for your favourite singer, instrumentalist, band, CD, first follow the link for the list of nominations - you have 4 to choose from in each category or you can, of course, make your own choice
Polls are good fun and have advanced from the days when Tommy Steele was, reportedly, voted ahead of Barney Kessel in the guitar section of a Melody Maker Poll!
On October 27, the winners will be presented with their awards at the Concorde Club, Southampton which lays claim to being the oldest jazz club in Britain having been going since 1957.
Vote here.

I think you should make up your mind BEFORE you see the nominations thus avoiding being brainwashed!
