Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".

Postage

11,618 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 753 of them this year alone and, so far, 17 this month (July 5).

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: Black Music in Europe: A Hidden History (part 3, Tuesday 21)

The third and final part of Clarke Peters' survey of post colonial musicians migrating to Europe will be broadcast tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9:00am on Radio 4. Black musicians from Jamaica, Trinidad, Surinam and many other parts of the globe found a home - and an audience - in Europe during the 1970s which coincided with the rise of disco and the synthesiser. If you miss the morning broadcast be sure to catch the repeat at 9:30pm. BSH's Ann Alex will once again review the programme.
