Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

London-centric Jazz Radio?

(Preview by Russell).
The mammoth EFG London Jazz Festival tends to dominate the jazz landscape but there is an alternative schedule. Saturday’s Jazz Line-Up (Radio 3, 5:00pm) sees Alyn Shipton in Budapest for this year’s European Jazz Network Conference from where he takes the opportunity to survey the scene in Hungary. At midnight Radio 3’s Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz looks at the career of band leader Maria Schneider.
Sunday at nine o’clock is your regular date with Clare Teal and this week Clare’s guest is reeds virtuoso Colin Skinner. A week’s worth of Hoagy Carmichael is something to bring cheer to these shortening winter days. Composer of the Week (Radio 3, Monday-Friday at noon with an early evening repeat) takes Carmichael as its subject. The 100 Club features in a four part series first broadcast in 2004. From trad to skiffle to punk, part one goes out at 2:00am Tuesday (parts 2 to 4, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).
Alright, okay, London wins…BBC Music Jazz – the four day digital pop-up station – will broadcast a London Jazz Festival double bill on Saturday evening at 7:30pm. A hot ticket gig sees the lauded Kamasi Washington in concert supported by GoGo Penguin.
