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.

Paul Edis: Lockdown Live #13 - June 12

Paul Edis (piano/vocals).

Start off each day with a song seems to be Paul's current modus operandi. This week it was Just Friends followed by a Kenny Wheeler number, Everybody's Song But my Own, which, despite the title, was a non-vocal delight.

Koto Song, by Brubeck caught the mood of the composer's intentions - this was as Japanese as Sushi and much tastier.

Tony Eales chipped in with a request as he invariably does. This week it was for Things Ain't What They Used to be - sure ain't!

Francis Tulip placed an order for April in Paris which was duly delivered complete with a quote from I'll Remember April - it was a popular month with songwriters!

A couple of Paul originals - I Wish I Was a Monk and  Will o' the Wisp

Moonglow reminded me to dig out my Moonlight Sinatra album. By coincidence, the film Picnic was on TV later and it featured Moonglow as part of the theme tune.

Jitterbug Waltz from the pen of Fats was given suitably reverential treatment and Blame it on my Youth is high up on my list of favourite ballads and the quote from Young at Heart did no damage at all.

The show closed with a request from Tony Roberts for Dolphin Dance.

Another fantastic Friday - roll on next week!
Lance
