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.

Ayanna Witter-Johnson Fundraiser

Ayanna Witter-Johnson has played several gigs at Sage Gateshead (photo  © Mark Savage) and at the Cluny - always getting the nod from us at BSH. I might add that not many cellists are given such approval - I think Pab Casals was the last one.
However, because we've always enjoyed her music, we've taken the rare, hardly ever, decision to promote her Fundraising appeal to assist the production of her [hopefully] next album.
Just follow the link below.
Lance.
PS: We don't normally promote Fundraisers so, if you're planning to make a pitch. it had better be a good one otherwise you won't even get a reply!
