Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

RIP Natalie Cole.

The death of singer Natalie Cole at the age of 65 has come as a shock to her many fans, not least to myself. Like her dad, she was a class act able to absorb his impeccable taste into her own persona.
Only one word for it - unforgettable.
Natalie Cole left us to join her father yesterday evening.
Sadly missed.
Lance.

Great singer Lance.

Which only leaves her uncle Freddie, aged 84, the last surviving member of this marvelous musical dynasty.

Yes, a gorgeous voice - if I believed in the bible and the afterlife, I'd like to think she will be singing heavenly duets with her velvet voiced father.
