Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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 Chris de Saram

One of last night's sadder moments at Ushaw was when Zoë [Gilby] informed me of the death of Chris de Saram on August 21. Although I didn't know him personally, apart from jazz-related emails, his involvement with and enthusiasm for jazz was legendary both with Wakefield Jazz Club, where Zoë got her first big break away from the north-east, and with NorVol jazz. As such, I felt I did know him - his passing will be felt by many. 
Chris de Saram was 72.
Rest In Peace.
Sebastian Scotney has posted a fitting obituary on LondonJazzNews.
