Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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".

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.

RIP Marlene VerPlanck

Marc Myers on his top-rated jazz blog, Jazz Wax, has reported the passing of legendary jazz vocalist Marlene VerPlanck on January 14 aged 84. Despite being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer the singer continued to perform until fairly recently.
Regrettably, I never heard her in person although she was a frequent visitor to the UK and gave a concert at Sage Gateshead during one of her tours. Fortunately, she left behind a recorded legacy samples of which can be heard as part of Marc Myers' tribute.
Sadly missed.
Lance.
