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.

Super Sunday's Dilemma

Sunday has more goodies on offer than you're ever likely to find under any Christmas tree.
Impossible to mention them all - they're listed above - and to even select one is to do an injustice to the others (I have, I hasten to add, no vested interest in any of the gigs) so, when I say I'm looking forward to the Hoochie Coochie gig by the House of the Black Gardenia it's simply because I just love this band and the atmosphere they create which is truly amazing. However, if the BGs weren't in town, I'd be down the road to Bishop Auckland to catch Steve Waterman with Durham Alumni Big Band. 
Fortunately, because of the advertised 18:00 HCT any athletic/fast-walking/motorised fan may well be able to catch at least one gig either side of the Hoochie Hoot.
