Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

Listen to the Epic (Hype?)

BBC Music Jazz, the digital pop-up radio station on air during last year’s London Jazz Festival, featured a live broadcast of Kamasi Washington’s much anticipated concert. Today (Saturday) Julian Joseph replays the event on Jazz Line-Up (Radio 3, 5:00pm). Tune in and judge for yourself – real deal or no deal? At midnight the ‘real deal’ Wes Montgomery is the subject of Geoffrey Smith’s Jazz, also on Radio 3.
Dave and Judith O’Higgins are guests of Clare Teal at 9:00pm, Sunday over on Radio 2. Retune to Jazz on 3 Radio 3 at 11:00pm on Monday to hear more from the London Jazz Festival as Jez Nelson introduces American trumpeter Christian Scott.
