Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

RIP Barbara Carroll

It has to be said that singers are hanging on in there a little longer these days. I know Al only made it to 76, which had me looking over my shoulder, but I'm not a singer. However, Buddy Greco was and he departed at 90. As was Barbara Carroll and the singer/pianist made it to 92. I never got to hear her live, or even pick up an album but I knew the regard in which she was held amongst her peers.
Listening here, I know now what  I've been missing from a woman who was both a singer and a pianist and a Sondheim interpreter.
Barbara died on Sunday, February 12 aged 92.
Sadly missed - a star.
Obituary.
In a Sentimental Mood.
Lance.

Me neither so I'll remove YouTube link. All Barbara Carroll links seem to have been blocked.

I had a look on YouTube, lots of good stuff of hers there. I particularly loved, "In a sentimental mood"
