Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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.

Helping our Bands and Musicians

(Press release from Northern Jazz Promoters)

During these challenging times, northern jazz bands and musicians  are invited to email Northern Jazz Promoters at: 
rich@northernjazzpromoters.org or rich@norvoljazz.org with the following details, to help with generating an additional income stream. Please restrict your information as requested, as there’s only one person putting it all together:
  1. Name of artist/band.
  2. A link to your main website or Facebook page.
  3. A link to a purchase page or a CD you have for sale.
  4. A link to single track purchases.
  5. A YouTube share link (if no video link, we will accept one photo)
Suggestion: You may like to include a link whereby a person could buy just one track to download (as well as the option to buy a whole album). 

The page (opened on 29 March 2020) will be populated, as information from bands and musicians is received. Please check back regularly over the next few days and weeks.
To the public – please help our bands and musicians by purchasing their music. Ideally, if visitors bought at least one track from a number of bands/musicians it would spread the support as widely as possible. Maybe one or more CDs a week. During these times of national lockdown, musicians are no longer able to perform live – one of the essential ways that they normally make their livelihoods. Your support is greatly appreciated.
----- 
We at BSH are in total accord with the above - Lance.
