Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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.

Vintage CDs of 2016


This past year BSH has reviewed over 200 CDs, usually from the current highfliers as well as those seeking to get a foot on the ladder. I've also had to bypass at least as many from this latter category. At times, I'm tempted to suggest they're climbing the wrong ladder but why should I? I'm not God and, who knows? maybe one day it will turn out that they are!  Surprisingly (or perhaps not) very few albums I get for review (or reviews of) are from the classic jazz masters. Those that are are, invariably, previously unreleased, newly discovered items. Historically as important as the Dead Sea Scrolls but still very much alive musically.

Here are those items
*This wasn't sent for review - I picked it up in a charity shop but, as it's such a fine album (Chris Potter on sax), I decided to include it anyway!
