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.

In between all this from Auntie, be sure to go into the left hand column and click on to the late night show from Chicago presented by the super cool, laid-back Denny Farrell. This week, he's playing Phineas Newborn, I Can't Get Started; Charlie Byrd, While We're Young; Kay Starr, When a Woman Loves a Man; Ruby Braff, Easy Living; Barbara Carroll, Satin Doll; Buck Clayton/Frankie Laine, That Old Feeling (complete w. verse); Gerry Mulligan Quartet, The Song is You; Frank Sinatra/Tommy Dorsey/Dick Haymes, The Song is You; Scott Hamilton, Easy to Love; Art Pepper, Powder Puff; Sarah Vaughan, After Hours and Always; Steve Allen, I Thought About You.

Who needs Spotify Playlists when you can hear such quality stuff as this? Thank you, Denny Farrell.
