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.

Tony Kofi & The Organisation @ Posk Jazz Café, London - November 3

Tony Kofi (baritone); Pete Whittaker (Hammond); Simon Fernsby (guitar); Pete Cater (drums).
(Report/photos courtesy of Mochles Sa).
The occasion was the CD launch of Tony Kofi & The Organisation's new CD - Point Black.
London-based photographer Mochles Sa was present at the Posk Jazz Café event organised by Peter Kaczmarski and he kindly sent BSH several excellent shots of the musicians which we have collated in an album along with some previous shots of Eddie Henderson taken earlier this year. 
Going by the photos of the Kofi gig it must have been a great evening although tinged with sadness as the news of the death of Roy Hargrove had broken that day. As such, the evening was dedicated to the memory of the great trumpet player.
