Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).

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".

COFID- 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.

Don't forget your bucket and spade!

One of our more southerly northern scribes, Ron Hampton, drew my attention to a couple of Sunday sessions at the seaside tomorrow:

Sunday 27th. May:  Brian Dales is playing at Saltburn House, Marine Parade, Saltburn between 4pm and 7pm free event.

Sunday 27th. May: Seaview Playboys (Gus Smith Keith Wilson and Paul Dickerson) play a mix of western swing, jazz, blues, etc. along with guest acts at The Cleveland, Coatham High St., Redcar start about 8pm. free.
Ron points out that the jazz content may be limited but the entertainment content won't!
