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.

RIP Marty Napoleon

I'm indebted to Maurice Summerfield for drawing my attention to the passing of Marty Napoleon. Marty was an on/off long term member of the Louis Armstrong All Stars and part of that memorable night club scene in The Glenn Miller Story when Louis and co played Basin Street Blues. As well as Louis, Marty played with many legends including Krupa, Charlie Barnet, Red Allen and Ruby Braff.
Marty Napoleon died on April 27 age 93.
