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".


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: Shelly's Soundtrack (Saturday 11)

(By Russell)

West Coast cool drummer Shelly Manne had another bow to his drum stick. When he wasn't lording it at Shelly's Manne-Hole he could be found in the Hollywood film studios composing and arranging many a film soundtack. One of Manne's silver screen assignments was scoring Burt Kennnedy's Young Billy Young

The 1969 release casts a lumbering Robert Mitchum in Burt Kennedy's western as a town sheriff taking Robert Walker under his wing. Angie Dickinson and David Carradine are among other on-screen notables. Tune to Paramount Network (Freeview) on Saturday at 5:20pm. The soundtrack was released on vinyl by United Artists.

This afternoon, I found myself watching "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner" The film based on Alan Sillitoe's novel of the same name.

Whilst Albert Finney was doing his long distance running which I don't think was really that long there was some excellent trumpet playing on the soundtrack. I guessed Pat Halcox and, lo and behold, after consulting Meeker, it was indeed the late, ex Chris Barber, trumpet man, Halcox. This wasn't actually such a wild guess as, around about this time, Halcox did a similar job ghosting for Richard Burton in the filmalisation of John Osborne's angry young man novel.
