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: Kai Hoffman - June 12

Kai Hoffman (vocals); Roger Lewin (keys)

Dropped in on Kai's Friday Night Function (my description) and heard Ain't Misbehavin'; A Nightingale Sang in (you know where!); Pennies From Heaven; The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy From Company B as well as Luckiest Girl Alive, Lies Lies Lies and Lucky Lips from an album Kai Released back in 2015. The Cliff Richards' number may seem an unusual choice but Kai made it work.

One of the tracks on that album is Hot Rockin' Diva which, although I didn't hear it on Friday, pretty much sums up this lady.

She sings, she dances, she bounces around and introduces her cat - all the best people have cats - they're cool!
Lance.
