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.

Stolen Sax.

If someone approaches you and says "Psst wanna buy a sax" tread carefully. Particularly if it's a Selmer Mark VI alto and the serial number lies between 104700 - 104799. It may just have been the one recently stolen from Soweto Kinch's car in London.
The instrument that was played so brilliantly by Soweto at the GIJF last month is a vintage 1963 horn and of both sentimental and monetary value to its owner.
If you suspect anything get some law in.
Lance.
