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.

Preview: Indigo Voices @ The Globe: August 16

Catch them this Thursday, or else miss out on a thoroughly enjoyable gig. I’m no longer saying that these 5 singers are ‘up and coming’ as in many ways they’ve already arrived. One singer recently appeared with a band, two of them are regulars at local jam sessions, another is an accomplished singer/songwriter, another is a skilled performer in the Globe Women's Jazz Workshops and one of the aforementioned has one of the best voices I’ve heard. So get yourself along, 7.30pm at the Globe, £5 entry.

Performing individually, to the accompaniment of Joel Brown on keys, Paul Grainger on bass, and Rob Walker on drums, will be Carrie McCullock, David Edgar, Jenny Lingham, Miriam McCormick and Jen Errington. Repertoire includes Night and Day; Turtle Blues; You Go To My Head; Come Rain Or Come Shine, Dancing In The Dark and a host of others.
