Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Whiplash!

The film, Whiplash, which opens at the Tyneside Cinema on Friday is, even in January, being talked about as the Film of the Year! From the trailers and clips that I've seen it looks to be one you'll either love or hate but not one you would want to miss!
Russell picked up these two quotes -  
Damien Chazelle, director Whiplash: “I never regret not being a drummer. I never wanted to be a professional drummer. Even though I was obsessive with it for so long.” – (Sight and Sound February 2015).
Susan Jeffreys, reviewing Whiplash: “You hate him [the character Terence Fletcher] from the get-go.” – (Saturday Review Radio 4, 10 January 2015).
I'm going to the early evening showing then on to the Jazz Café for the DB Project.. This could be a night to remember!
Lance.
