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".

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.

Dulcie May Moreno: Lockdown Session - June 19

The first of tonight's triple-header featured vocalist Dulcie May Morino in a sublime performance accompanied from afar by Stephen Bridgland on guitar. When I checked in Dulcie was working out on Poison Ivy, the Lieber/Stoller number made famous by The Coasters. 

Perdido swung gently and we met Dulcie's beautiful white cat - I think our Daphne was jealous as she refused to look at the screen.


Is You Is or is You Ain't my Baby? may be grammatically suspect but it's still a great tune with a great lyric and, if Dulcie had been singing it to me there would have been no doubt as to my answer!

God Bless the Child suffered from some interruptions - not least by the cat wanting out and the child remained unblessed. Hallelujah I Just Love Him So swung along nicely whilst Peel me a Grape had me reaching for the fruit bowl.

Puttin' on the Ritz, Sway and Undecided followed - Dulcie was in fine voice but, unfortunately, I had a date with Rico and Spats so I missed the final numbers.

I'll make sure my rota is better scheduled next time!
