Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/July 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.

Quiet Appreciation

Hugh brought this article in yesterday's Independent to my notice which he thought might draw some comments (in between tunes of course) from our readers.

At a gig a few years ago a group of people talked none-stop. I was just about to tell them where to go when this big bear of a bloke (folkie beard, lumberjack shirt) beat me to it. He stood up (7'10''), turned round and bellowed 'I have paid to listen to these musicians (pointing at our guests from America) not you, so shut the f*** up!' That did the trick!

As the late great Ronnie Scott used to say "quiet please you're not here to enjoy yourselves"

If it's good they'll listen - if it's bad they'll talk.
(In a perfect world!)
