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.

Radio Russell: The Sound of Cinema, Somerset Blues and Car Horns

Film of the moment Whiplash is included in Matthew Sweet’s selection of ‘jazz-inspired film music’ in Sound of Cinema (Radio 3, Saturday 17 January, 4:00pm). Justin Hurwitz, composer, is in good company with Alex North’s score for A Streetcar Named Desire on the playlist.
Shabaka Hutchings plays some of his favourite South African jazz tracks and his band the Blue Notes can be heard in concert at last year’s London Jazz Festival on Jazz Line-Up at 9:00pm (Radio 3). Earlier, on Radio 4 (2:30pm) tune in to hear the ‘blues-infused musical fairy tale’ Drama: Kneehigh’s The Wild Bride. Carl Grose’s play adapted for radio by the playwright and Emma Rice features music written by Stu Barker. Jez Nelson’s Jazz on 3 (Monday, Radio 3, 11:00pm) could be a good listen with a set recorded at London’s Café Oto featuring John Dikeman, Hamid Drake and William Parker. A similarly good listen could be Somerset Blues: The Story of Acker Bilk (Tuesday, Radio 2, 10:00pm). Actor and singer Clarke Peters presents a one hour tribute to the man from the West Country. Radio 3’s In Tune invariably has some jazz content from week to week and Thursday’s edition, 4:30pm, finds Empirical performing live in the studio. Gershwin’s Horns promises to be an oddity. BBC Radio 4 Extra, Friday (8:30pm) looks at An American in Paris. Gershwin and car horns…beep, beep!        
Russell.
