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

11,626 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 761 of them this year alone and, so far, 25 this month (July 6).

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.
