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.

Crombie's New Café

Further to Russell's previous post here are the details for next Tuesday's memorial to Keith Crombie at the Art's Dept.  Café at Newcastle Uni.. It is also the official opening and re-naming of what was 'The Art Café' to 'Keith's Café'.
Could he have wished for a greater epitaph?
And has ever a non-playing jazzman been given so many accolades?
I hope you rest in peace Keith but it may be a while.
Nobody accepts that you've gone "Up There" or, more likely, "Down below". Lance.
