Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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)

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.

When Bix met Louis

 Bix Beiderbecke and Louis Armstrong met, went into the studio and recorded a session. Robert Forrest’s play Bix: Singing the Blues (Drama on 3, BBC Radio 3, Sunday 5 June, 9:00pm) ‘depicts a fictionalised version’ of their meeting. Brian Dick plays Bix and Eric Kofi Abrefa plays Louis in this welcome repeat. Original music is by Iain Johnstone.
Earlier, over on Radio 4 Extra, 4:00pm, Bonnie Greer’s musical drama Marilyn and Ella at the Mocambo charts Marilyn Monroe’s efforts in the 1950s to help Ella Fitzgerald get a booking at the Mocambo.
