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 Ernestine Anderson


Legendary American jazz singer Ernestine Anderson died on March 10 aged 87. A prolific recording artist making over 30 albums, the last one as recent as 2011. Four Grammy nominations recording on  a variety of labels including Mercury, Columbia and Concord. She toured with Lionel Hampton, had discs produced by Q and even lived in London for awhile.
A unique stylist who deserves to be spoken of in the same breath as some of the more deified singers. Listen to her here age 81!
Ernestine will be sadly missed.
Obituary,
Lance.
