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.

Adrian Cox: Sunday Service - June 14

Adrian Cox (clarinet/vocal)

Can't deliver chapter and verse on this one as, once again, the technology didn't keep pace and the picture kept freezing which ruined the continuity. I'm pleased (or perhaps I should say displeased) to note that I wasn't alone in having this problem.

When the music did break through it was good and a well deserved tribute to the late Archie Semple who I remember fondly from his days with Freddy Randall and Alex Welsh.

Cox, whilst tonally different to what I remember of Semple's playing, captured the feeling and all done without the safety of a rhythm section.

The numbers I heard before giving up in frustration included: Ostrich Walk; I'm Comin' Virginia; What'll I Do?; Goody Goody (vocal); Sugar Babe and Deep Sleep - a Semple original.

Hopefully, next week will have fewer gremlins...
Lance.
