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

11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).

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.

Snow

There was me all geared up for tonight's Customs House concert - Kinda Bixish - with Digby Fairweather stepping into the role of the iconic but ultimately tragic cornet player from Davenport, Iowa.
Yes I was looking forward to an evening of Bix. And then the snows came. The warmth of the radiator on the wall and the uncertainty of the buses, meant no Bix for me tonight.
Tomorrow Digby 'does' Ruby Braff at Gosforth but will the weather have improved? Likewise, let's hope conditions are better for Sunday's two girly gigs - Debra at the Bridge and Carly at Hoochie.
Hopefully, at least by Monday, things will have taken a turn for the better and I will make the Paul Edis Jazz Piano Tribute at the Cherry Tree.
Elsewhere, this gig has been listed as being £10 admission giving you 2 courses and the Edis Trio. This was the deal when the venue first started promoting jazz 3/4 years ago but now the deal is 2 courses for £15.
Lance.
