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.

RIP Kenny Drew Jr.

Pianist Kenny Drew Jr. passed away on August 3. I only heard him once, some years back (2007), at Sage Gateshead with the Mingus Big Band. I was impressed.
Although his father was a renowned pianist he claimed not to have been influenced by him - perhaps it was in the genes.
Whatever, Kenny Drew Jr. left a considerable recorded legacy.
Sadly missed.
He was 56 years old...
Obituary.
Lance.
