Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)

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".

COVID-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.

Yuya Hunami Trio @ Jazz Cafe - May 22

See Lance’s review for the line-up. This is my take on it, in the form of a poem

Infinite number of beats in the Universe
The drummer catches some
And sounds them
Just for us
‘Chuck chuck chacky chuck’
No, onomatopoeia
Cannot cut it

Infinite number of tones in the Universe
Some caught by piano
Just for us
Always and forever, Nica’s dream on the sunny side of the street in Strasbourg St Denis
And Mozart dances in his grave to the new fangled rondo

Infinite number of depths in the Universe
Some caught by a bass foundation
Just for us
So dependable
And it knows how to take a bow

Three men made my night
Yet never laid a finger on me
Just laid it down
So, so well
