Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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.

Roy Ayers @ Hoochie Coochie - July 17.

Roy Ayers (vbs/vcl); Jamal Peoples (keys);  John Pressley (vcl); Donald Nicks (bs); ? (dms). + (I'm told) Chris Jelly (vbs).
(Review by Lance)
A fantastic night and I missed the icing on the cake! The end, like the 27 bus was nigh, so I slipped away only to discover this morning that local vibes king Chris Jelly joined the great man on stage and in doing so became a legend himself!
I suppose, in years to come, I'll go around saying "I was there" and actually get to believe it! 
But even without this extra moment of magic it was a super session with, for me, Jamal Peoples the one who stood out brilliant as all the rest were.
The packed club showed their appreciation by applauding loudly and vociferously - it was a night and a half (and I missed the half!) Perhaps Roy Ayers will make up for it by sitting in on the next King Bee gig!
