Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".

Postage

11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).

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.

Mainstream/modern CDs of the Year

International
Walter Smith III - TWIO.
Burak Bedikyan - New Beginning.
Jorge Nila - Tenor Time.
NYSQ - Heaven Steps to Seven.

National
Paul Moran - Smokin' B3. Vol 2: Still Smokin'.
Dan Banks Quintet - Simulated Cities.
Jean Toussaint Allstar 6tet - Brother Raymond.
Dave O'Higgins Trio - Tenors of Our Time.

Once again, in no particular order and, just because an album is in National as opposed to International, it doesn't mean they are Championship as opposed to Premiership - it is purely geographical and all eight choices are just about as good as it gets in either division.
Lance.

PS: I must point out that, as the year draws to a close, there are still many of you who have yet to submit their suggestions for CD/Gig of the Year - and that includes members of our in-house team - so, in-house, out-house or that other house - get your styli out!
Lance.
