Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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

11,644 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 779 of them this year alone and, so far, 43 this month (July 11).

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.

Needs of the Jazz Community

Jazz Services invite all interested parties - and that means you if you're visiting this site - to take part in a survey in an attempt to establish the needs of the Jazz Community. John Lyons of Jazz Services says that they are trying to gather as much data as they can on how best to serve the scene.  It’s something that they (and the Arts Council) have been wanting to do for a while. 
I think it's important that we do air our views and share our thoughts with them as to what we want from Jazz Services and how they can draw important conclusions from the Jazz Community's response.

PS: Of similar importance is the need for that same community to turn up at the Lit and Phil, Newcastle on October 23 for the public meeting JAZZ IN THE NORTH EAST - THE WAY FORWARD. 7pm. Chris Hodgkins of Jazz Services will chair the meeting.
