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.

Noel Dennis & Friends @ The Cherry Tree July 21.

Noel Dennis (tpt/flg); Jeremy McMurray (pno); Neil Harland (bs).
"I'm in a Chet Baker mood tonight" said Noel. "Really?" I replied, hardly surprised - Chet is his alter ego. Indeed I sometimes wonder if Noel isn't a younger, cleaner living, relation of Chet's!. 
Tonight was an absolute gem of jazz chamber music. Noel is the only brass man I know who sounds as cool on trumpet as he does on flugel.
There is no Greater Love and the Lincolnshire Poacher & Spinach Soufflé was my delight this Monday night followed by Four, a Tom Harrell number. and Beautiful Love which summed up the Chargrilled Bistro Rump Steak with Peppercorn Butter and Traditional Steak Garnish.
Everything Happens to Me and Freddie Freeloader rounded off the set although I was far from feeling any kind of blue - how could I after Sticky Toffee Pudding, Caramel Sauce and Vanilla Ice Cream? Not to mention the superb playing of these three aces.
Lance.
