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".


11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).


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.

Eventually caught up with BBC4's program on Peggy Lee. It was worth the wait and the hassle (don't ask me) to watch and listen to such a beautiful artist. Sheer magic. My only quibble was the failure to mention the album 'Black Coffee' and 'The Folks Who Live On The Hill' from a later album. Both represent the pinacle of popular singing whilst 'Black Coffee' is also way up there in the jazz vocal ratings.
One to keep.

A wonderful artist and a pleasure to watch those early heady days when we were (all) young, with the world at our feet!
