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.

RIP Ed Bickert (1932-2019)

Undoubtedly Canada's greatest guitarist, Ed Bickert passed away on February 28. I could post a few platitudes but much better for me to refer you to what well-known northeast guitarist Roly Veitch wrote back in 2009.

Ed Bickert was 86.
Sadly missed.
Lance.

Very sad news. You know people are getting older but it's still a shock.
Ed Bickert, the unassuming, quiet supreme master of jazz guitar.
