Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

Christmas Appeal from Sarah Ellen Hughes.

Tomorrow, Sunday December 2, I'm releasing a Christmas single – it’s a song I've written, and it’s sung by the children at my school.  We’re releasing it to raise money for a charity called Music as Therapy International, which is a UK-based charity working to support disabled children and adults for a better quality of life through music.
I need to make about 3,000 sales of the song to raise any money for the charity and this could possibly get us into the UK charts.  I'm taking on this massive project by myself as I don’t have any management/PR/record company on board, so I'm hoping to get some help from friends and colleagues, particularly people I've worked with before in a musical capacity, as this project is for a music charity.
So, if you are able to, would you mind mentioning it in a newsletter/on a mailing list, to help spread the word as much as possible.  I appreciate that a mailing list is a delicate thing, and you can’t go overboard on promotion, but if think that your mailing list would be receptive to this, then I would truly appreciate your help.
The details are:
Let the Light Shine Down, by Riverside Children’s Choir
Written by Sarah Ellen Hughes
Released 2nd December 2012.
Sold in aid of Music as Therapy International.
Digital release only – buy it for 79p on iTunes.
And of course, it would be amazing if you could buy a copy next Sunday!!  Thank you so much!

I'd like to add my voice to the appeal and ask every one of our readers to download the single.
It's only 79p!
