Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Preview: Sunday Night is Billie Holiday Night

In 2015 at Hackney Empire Mike Dixon conducted the BBC Concert Orchestra in a centenary tribute to Billie Holiday. This evening on Radio 2 there is another chance to hear the edition of Sunday Night is Music Night which features Madeline Bell, Gloria Onitiri and Rebecca Ferguson singing numbers associated with Holiday. Trumpeter Guy Barker and saxophonist Ben Castle join the vocal triumvirate. Seven o'clock, Radio 2.

Certainly is a jazz night! As well as the Billie Holiday programme - hopefully it won't be the overworked numbers that every wannabe does such as God Bless the Child and Fine and Mellow but less hackneyed tunes such as Them There Eyes and I Hear Music.

At 9:00pm, on the Talking Pictures channel, there's a 1968 Sunday Night at the London Palladium featuring Sarah Vaughan and Marvin Rainwater - I wonder who tops the bill!

In between there is the livestream from The Globe with Elina Duni and Rob Luft details of which can be found among yesterday's posts.

A busy night ahead!
