Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

Saturday Night @ The Jazz Café

The number 22 bus took me from the Globe to the Jazz Café. I had two reasons to call in, the second one was to catch the final moments of this Saturday's duo set. It was so good I almost forgot the first reason for calling which could have been embarrassing if I had!
Giles Strong and Mick Shoulder on guitars - yes Mick using six strings instead of four! As a bonus we had Ray Burns on harmonica and Paul Edis on clarinet! In musical terms - a bonus worthy of Barclays or Thomas Cook!
