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.

RIP Ed Shaughnessy.

One of the all-time drumming greats has passed away. Ed Shaughnessy spent most of his career with Doc Severinson's band on the American Tonight TV show but in his early days he was part of Charlie Ventura's legendary Bop For The People band. He was one of the most sort after drum tutors and the favourite drummer of many more well known percussionists including Buddy Rich.
I think I'll listen to those old Ventura tracks again.
Ed Shaughnessy died on May 24, 2013 aged 84.
Rest In Peace.
Lance.
