Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

What a Wonderful World - not!

Yesterday I got a very exciting email from the Highest Point Festival in the UK offering to fly my whole band to Lancaster, England and pay us 5,000 Pounds (plus hotel & airline tickets)! 
It is a scam, of course. The festival, for starters, is a rock festival. Fellow musicians, please watch out for this kind of thing. 
Thanks to Lance Liddle, my friendly local jazz source (http://lance-bebopspokenhere.blogspot.com/), for helping me ferret out the truth. I finally called the festival organizers to check it out and they said they'd received other calls and it's false. Too bad... I would have loved to have done the gig if there had of been a gig!
