Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

You’ve really gone an’ done it this time

Words from Gordon Phillips:
You’re talkin’ to someone but you don’t know who.
You’re callin’ another it turned out they knew.
Oh, you’ve dropped yourself right in it.
Oh, you’ve put your foot right in it.
Oh, you’ve really gone an’ done it.
You’ve really gone an’ done it this time.


You say things you guess at so make out it’s true
It’s bad times for me for I’m dropped in it too.
Oh, there’s no way to mistake it.
Oh, there’s no way you can save it.
Oh, it’s true you like to brave it;
But you’ve really gone an’ done it this time.

You speak out an’ say things you think that’s it fine
Then run into trouble an’ can’t draw a line.
Oh, you’re good at rufflin’ feathers.
Oh, you’re good at it as ever.
Oh, you think you’re mighty clever.
You’ve really gone an’ done it this time.
G. F. Phillips
