Bebop Spoken There

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.

Time to Get Carter

If you've never seen Get Carter (unlikely) then tune to ITV 4 at nine o'clock tonight. Mike Hodges' classic British gangster movie is as noir-ish as you like with a soundtrack by Roy Budd. 

Singer Denea Wilde features in one scene - see if you can identify the members of the band.

Michael Caine visits lots of north east of England landmarks meeting some dodgy characters along the way...you know what I mean?

I did play with the lady singer, must have been in the sixties in a club in North Shields. Trio keyboards and drums myself on the bass guitar.
