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.

2019 British Jazz Awards - Results

Big Bear has announced the winners of this year's British Jazz Awards and, as usual they're fairly predictable. However,  they  weren't all shoo-ins, Alan Barnes was pipped by Julian Marc-Stringle in the Clarinet Stakes and Sara Dowling edged Claire Martin in the Singer's Sprint.


Despite Emma Fisk's strong showing last year, this time round none of our guys and gals made the cut. How long ,will it be before Paul Edis cracks it?

Still, polls don't pay the rent but they are good fun and seeing your favourite musician etc. get the nod gives you the same kind of glow you feel when your team wins something.

Jerry E and I faintly remember that glow...
