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.

RIP Ian Whitcomb.

I've just received a link to the latest edition of The Syncopated Times which includes an obituary of Ian Whitcomb, a pop star of the 1960s who later played ragtime. I'll be honest and admit I know very little about him although, some years ago, I did read a book that he'd written - After The Ball.

So, rather than muddle through I'll link you directly to The Syncopated Times which includes several other obituaries including San Francisco trombonist Bob Meilke.
Ian Whitcomb died on April 19 aged 78.
Bob Meikle died on April 17 aged 94.
