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.

CD Review: Yoko Miwa Trio - Keep Talkin'

Yoko Miwa (piano); Will Slater (bass); Scott Goulding (drums); Brad Barrett (bass on 1 track).
(Review by Lance)
You know the feeling, you've got no money coming in and the bills are arriving on a conveyer belt and you wonder HTF am I going to pay them? The solution is, of course, to rob Peter to pay Paul and, ultimately, vice versa.

This is my situation - no I'm not looking for money - I need volunteers*. Volunteers to review the deluge of CDs that have already occupied my garage and are making inroads into just about every room in the house - and I mean every room! Apart from that, there are n downloads and streamers hovering out in cyberspace threatening to land. My postman will expect a tip the equivalent of maybe half of the national debt or perhaps a copy of the Yoko Miwa Trio's album, Keep Talkin'...
He could do worse... 

Miwa, a Japanese born, Boston based, pianist, composer (a professor at Berklee) plays a lot of piano and this CD features her playing jazz standards such as In Walked Bud; Boogie Stop Shuffle; Golden Slumbers/You Never Give me Your Money (Beatles); Conversation (Joni Mitchell) plus several of her own compositions with a couple of great guys supporting her all of the way. If you like jazz piano - look no further.
