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.

Preview: Two of us: Celebrating the Lennon and McCartney Songbook.

This Sunday (May 26 - 7:30pm) sees another blockbuster event coupling the Northern Sinfonia with the jazz and pop world at Sage Gateshead..
Yes it may be aimed at The Beatles still considerable following but as the participants include Claire Martin and Joe Stilgoe (along with Mark McGann) this is going to appeal to a wider audience and even without John Wilson on baton it should still be an evening full of Liverpudlian lyrics and Merseyside music - hopefully with a few jazz gestures along the way.
Have a look at Sage Gateshead's link above to view a video showing clips from previous performances.
