Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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.

Future Passed Trio @ Vortex Jazz Club Dalston . Sept 21.

Tony Kofi  alto/baritone sax; Anders Olinder  Hammond organ; Winston Clifford drums
I am not a trained musician, but I've been listening to jazz since Adam was a lad, and I do like to recognise  a tune, and hear a lyric  I can relate to.  There are exceptions to the rule and this  experience was my Sea Change.
The Trio was cohesive, but individuals were given generous  solo space.   With one exception,  a McCoy Tyner piece, the main bulk of the varied set list was written by Tony Kofi,.  I didn't need lyrics, the arrangements spoke volumes, and the musicality was magnetic. Seeing/Hearing is Believing, get to see these guys, or you will never know what a cracking night you missed.
Flore.
