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

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.

Mingus Mondays Live.

Very excited about my upcoming "Mingus Mondays" solo livestream today, Monday, at 7:30pm (Tuesday 00:30am BST). I have really been working hard to prepare this, and trust me, there will be some surprises. Please tune in!
There are a couple of ways to see it. It is free on the Charles Mingus Facebook page, as the first post in the timeline:

This is the direct link to the post, which I'm told will also be open to non-facebookers (hopefully):

Also, it will be embedded on www.CharlesMingus.com ...  (scroll down on the home page; it's also under "online events"). Might even have it up on the ScienSonic site if we can get that together.

Hope to see you tomorrow. Besides performing, I will also be taking questions/comments/criticisms/excoriations from any/all. See you then!  - Scott

PS, My apologies to those who tried to watch my backyard concert with Martin Wind last week, and ran into difficulties. There were many issues, the main one being that the streaming didn't kick in until halfway through the show. Then it was supposed to be archived on the site, but vanished after a couple of days, apparently forever. Tomorrow's thing should not have these problems, as the good Mingus folks have been doing these shows every Monday for several months now.
