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.

Enrico Tomasso & Brian Kellock: Livestream - June 13

Enrico Tomasso (trumpet/flugel); Brian Kellock (piano).

Thanks to the usual Facebook shenanigans that seem to plague me when  I log in to this particular stream I reached the end of the show 3 minutes after everyone had gone home! No one else seems to have this problem - maybe I was born under the wrong sign. 

Fortunately, although I only heard disjointed versions of Who Cares?; Azalea and Ko-Ko, the Gods smiled on me and allowed Thanks For The Memory to be rendered untarnished.


With Brian Kellock on piano, and reminiscent of those classic Ruby Braff/Ellis Larkins' recordings, this was, arguably, the finest moment of the series so far. It would be good to hear Brian and Rico doing an album together in proper studio conditions - now that would really be something!

The beer this week was Whitstable Bay which, presumably, is brewed in Whistable Bay - a Kentish resort noted for its oysters.

Also, during the stop start period, there was a sketch of young Rico with Louis Armstrong as well as one of Rico who, according to the comments, was wearing Clark sandals.

Next weekend  Spats returns as Rico's accomplice.
