Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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 Keith Emerson


I must confess, I didn't know much about Keith Emerson until I heard him playing Honky Tonk Train Blues. I bought the 45rpm and found the B-side  Barrel House Shakedown even better.
Listen to him with Oscar Peterson doing that same Honky Tonk Train number.  Alright, OK, So Maybe, Oscar wins but it's a photo finish!
So sad to lose such a great musician in such circumstances.
The world will remember you, Keith, from Emerson, Lake and Palmer but I'll remember you for reviving an old Meade Lux Lewis tune. Maybe Meade would have dug it too...
RIP, sadly missed.
Obituary.
Lance.
