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.

Help!

Despite the so-called easing of the lockdown restrictions the music scene hasn't really benefited from it. I'm not going into the greasy pot of how much money is, or rather isn't, going into the arts/culture - call it what you will - sector compared to other countries as there is plenty activity in that direction on Facebook including opportunities to mail your MP so that he or she may throw their weight behind it.


No, what I'm getting at is that, although there ain't no gigs to go, there are so many livestreams, watch parties etc being streamed that the BSH team is stretched to the limit to cover even a small percentage of them which is where we need your help.

Next time you go on line to watch some guy/gal singing or playing. Tell us about it. Or, if you have fond/or otherwise memories of a gig or an album from way back, write about it. Doesn't matter whether it's a one-liner or an unabridged version of War and Peace (preferably somewhere in between) we want to post it.

Please,
Lance
