Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/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.

Gig of the Year. David Sanborn & Bob James @ The London Jazz Festival. Barbican, November 16, 2013.


David Sanborn (alto); Bob James (piano); Scott Colley (bass); Steve Gadd (drums).
My ticket to the concert was a wild card, a mystery trip as the group were unknown to me. My mind was a blank canvas. By the end of the first piece a rainbow of colour had been painted.
I have since reflected on why the occasion had such a profound effect on me.
My conclusion is simple - keep jazz live - the impossible is possible.
Flore.
