Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

Rico and Nils - Take 2

Enrico Tomasso (trumpet/vocals) ; Nils Solberg (guitar).

More Louis Armstrong music as played by Rico with, on this occasion, Nils Solberg adding his tasty Eddie Lang, Carl Kress etc. guitar licks and solos from afar.

The format has become standardised and non the worse for that. Rico warms up, introduces his guest, blows some Armstrong associated numbers over the backing, knocks back some beer, says hello to family and friends who have commented, tells a story or two related to the song, knocks back some more beer and blows some of the best classic jazz trumpet playing I've heard for many  a year as well as throwing in some vocals to give his lip a rest!


Jeepers Creepers: Margie; Rockin' Chair; Lover Come Back to Me were this week's killer-dillers (I speak zee lingo) with the latter tune the big one.
Lance
PS: For once, the stop choruses that Facebook throws in carte blanche were relatively few this week!
