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".

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.

My Two Favourite Gals!

Had to share this Facebook post by Daryl - Lance.
----- 
Just in time for Jewish New Year! I have finally found the box and folder with this (to me) very significant photo. Not only does it document my first appearance on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz (spring of 1994) an honor that paved the way for a major career turn. After our session that very day I told Marian I was auditioning for a gig at the Waldorf=Astoria. "Good luck, honey" she said and boy did that do the trick. Even more special was our friendship that developed through these many years. I deeply miss her. She was and always will be my best role model on so many levels.

I saw this earlier on FB - isn't it great! What memories! Plus, how wonderful to have Daryl with us at the Classic Jazz Party this year, with her inimitable style.
