Bebop Spoken There

Georgia Cécile: "For me, whether it's an instrumentalist or a singer, they have to be telling a story." - (JazzWisee 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".

Postage

11,635 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 770 of them this year alone and, so far, 34 this month (July 9).

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.

Kickin' the Gong Around

The 2018 Queen's Birthday honours List has three jazz names heading for the Palace and one or two non-jazz names who should, perhaps, be heading for the Tower
The jazzers are: Julian Joseph who clicks for an OBE, Orphy Robinson who scores for an MBE as does Dennis Rollins (pictured at Scarborough Jazz Festival, 2007.)
Joseph, apart from being a fine pianist and composer, is also a jazz broadcaster and, if he ever quits music, maybe he could become Head of Northern Rail. Vibesman Robinson has appeared in the northeast several times going back to 2000, maybe even earlier, whilst Dennis Rollins was here in April this year blowing 'bone with Maceo Parker at GIJF. On that performance alone, "They should have made Mister Rollins a Lord."
And, talking about honours, The All Party Parliamentary Jazz Awards are once again upon us.
Who knows but that this may be the year when BSH gets nominated in the Media Category - Well I can dream, can't I?
To cast your vote go to the group website. You've got until July 4...
