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.

Livestream: Haruka Kikuchi - June 28

Haruka Kikuchi (trombone); Z2 Tsuji (keys); Nobu Ozaki (bass).

It looked to be hot, and I mean hot hot, way down yonder in New Orleans. On the bayou, I guess the 'gators were lazing in the shade, the steam rising, whilst I doubt that anyone would be parading on South Rampart St.

However, despite the hot and humid atmosphere, Haruka, Z2, and Nobu set up shop in the front garden and delighted us with a splendid afternoon's music.

Sunday; Sweet Sue; Ice Cream; A Hundred Years From Today; a Basie number that will give me sleepless nights until I put a name to it; After You've Gone (a killer piano solo from Z2); Ory's Creole Trombone; Tin Roof Blues and The World is Waiting For the Sunrise which was a topical tune to finish off with although the sun had well and truly arrived in the Crescent City. This latter tune had a few "one more time" endings.

Shouta was relatively tame this week apart from some slide-whistle contributions. Nobu was solid but, like Haruka's announcements, needed the volume cranked up to be heard properly.

Rapidly becoming a Sunday must!
Lance.
