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

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.

Dan Burnett; Watch Party - June 16

Dan Burnett (piano.vocals).

Jim Simpson of Big Bear Music launched this watch party featuring a pianist who is better than your average bluesman and more diverse with his material giving us a pleasing mix of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan as well as some originals and classics such as Route 66, Unchain my Heart and Hallelujah I Just Love Her So.


To add to the interest, by the wonders of voice recognition we had the words printed across the screen as they were sung and spoken except that we didn't quite get all of them and sometimes what was said/sung sometimes made for quite hilarious translations. Ray Charles, for example, came up as Rachel's!

However, that is by the by, the piano playing was great and the voice suited to the idiom.

If you missed it, the good news is that, over in Birmingham (not the one in Alabama), Tuesday is Bluesday so look in next week.
Lance.
PS: And, you gotta believe me, Facebook did as it was told and the picture didn't freeze - not even once!
