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.

Preview: Indigo Jazz Voices @ The Globe: October 10

Barry Keatings, Carrie McCullock, David Edgar, Jenny Lingham, Jen Errington (individual vocals); Alan Law (piano).

I Only Have Eyes For You. Yes, this is just one of the well-chosen songs to be sung next Thursday at the latest gig to be performed by the Indigo Jazz Voices. You'll only have eyes (and ears) for these skilled singers, who will be doing at least 4 songs each, not just a couple of songs, as some listings will tell you.

And what's more, the singers are to be accompanied by one of the best keysmen around, Alan Law. Other songs on the progamme include You Go To My Head; La Vie En Rose; Bring It On Home To Me.

 So why not get yourself along to the Globe for 7.30pm? all welcome, £5 admission, such good value.
