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.

More Discs to Die For.

It's some years now since we requested readers to submit their Five Discs to Die For. The idea was to provide a guide for those fans
maybe just dipping their toe into the often cloudy jazz stream. We received an excellent response the results of which are linked in the right-hand column pages. Today one of our newer reviewers, Steven Tulip, submitted his choices:
Miles Davis - Nefertiti.
John Coltrane - Africa Brass.
Duke Ellington - And His Mother Called Him Bill.
Charles Mingus - Tijuana Moods.
Weather Report - Black Market.
This prompted me to think that some of our readers/contributors who weren't on board when we first launched the idea might like to do so now and, in the process, maybe add some newer discs.
The criteria is - 5 discs max and no duplications of those already chosen.
The list is here.
Lance.
