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.

Remo Belli 1927-2016


Drummers the world over are mourning the passing of Remo Belli the creator the synthetic drumhead. Belli died on April 25 in California. Drummers will argue the merits of the various makes of drumkits, sticks or cymbals but never drumheads. The only debate there was which of the many Remo heads were/are the best.
A very good legacy to leave behind.
Remo Belli was 88, may he rest in peace. Sadly missed.
Obituary.
Lance.
Thanks to Maurice Summerfield for bringing this sad news to my attention.
