Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

Jazz Mastermind

Switched on TV - they were showing a re-run of Mastermind. I was just about to change channels when I heard the 'J' word. Yes, someone intended to answer questions on Jazz. Not only that, but the guy in the hot seat was non other than Ron Simpson of Big Bear Music, the Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival and the Jazz Rag magazine.
Ron scored an impressive 14 points on his specialist subject only 1 point behind a girl answering questions on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He only slipped up on Slim Gaillard and Flat Foot Floogie.
It was a tight skirmish in the General Knowledge Round with Ron ending up 3rd on 23 pts, "Buffy" on 24 and the eventual winner on 25.
Well done Ron.
Lance.
