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.

Tonight @ Hoochie - Diane Shaw


Another coup for Warren - a return visit by super soul singer Shaw. Diane has been touring for 20 years picking up many accolades and chart-topping soul albums along the way.

Tonight, the Manchester-based singer will bring a ten-piece backing group so this is going to be special. Not a jazz gig by any means but, rest assured, there will be some good blowers in there goosing her along to even greater heights and if you've got your dancing shoes on so much the better although there probably won't be room to do much more than shaking your booty.
Doors are at 7pm. Show commences 9:30pm. Tickets (£15).
Lance.
