Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/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".

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.

Simon Spillett gets the nod for 'Services to Jazz 2016'

Russell mentions the award winners heading for Ushaw College but omits to mention one who isn't heading for Ushaw.
Simon Spillett.
Simon, tenor player, author and authority on Tubby Hayes, is a worthy winner. Unlike so many musicians of stature, Spillett is interested in the music as a whole both past, present, and future. That he can write as effectively as he plays - although if he types as fast as he plays he must go through a keyboard a month - puts him on a level with Humph, Melly, and Digby in the British jazz musician literary stakes.
That he also finds time in his busy schedule to occasionally send a snippet to BSH does him no harm in this quarter.
Well done Simon - next stop Downbeat.
Lance.
