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)

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.

The Big Match: Facebook versus YouTube

In attempting to review what has proved to be one of the better regular lockdown live streams - in terms of content and performance - the curse of the online digital freeze struck once more. Facebook was the platform and, yet again, our subject was just getting up a head of steam when the moving image became the still image. Click, expletive, click, click, expletive and, several minutes later, give up! Meanwhile...over the last few weeks it seems YouTube has offered a more reliable service. Observations welcome.

Russell, yes I agree, YouTube wins every time. Besides that I dislike facebook generally as I find it a very difficult platform to navigate, compared to the average website. And when you are listening to something and you move down the page the sound disappears then sometimes the picture pops up somewhere else. UGH!
