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.

RIP Bengt Hallberg

Another fine pianist has left us - Sweden's Bengt Hallberg. Back in the 1950s, Sweden was at the forefront of European jazz with outstanding players such as baritone saxist Lars Gullin, altoist Arne Domnerus and pianist Hallberg. They recorded with many Americans, Hallberg receiving international recognition after a series of sides with Stan Getz. I still have them on Esquire 78 rpms as well as on LP -  treasured items.
Bengt Hallberg died July 2 aged 80.
RIP.
Lance.
