Bebop Spoken There

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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

A Great Day in Harlem


It's probably the most well-known photo in jazz history and, naturally, there's a story behind it - a few stories in fact. In Don de Barros' biography of Marian McPartland Shall We Play That One Together? Marian  explains the absence of her husband Jimmy.
The photo shoot was at 10am and Jimmy said "That's too ******* early" and turned over and went back to sleep!
There was also a film, part one of which can be seen here.
Thanks to Bill Gallon for drawing this to my attention.
Lance.
