Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 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".

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.

Jazz Legacy

Hi Lance,
I've just spent about 2 hours looking through your photos. Thank you for giving me the chance to wrap myself up in the atmosphere of your lifelong hunt for music and imagary; those photos leave quite a legacy for you. Decades of one off nights and an ever changing scene but still a continuous flow of jazz. My experience of talented jazz musicians often shows their offstage flaws but with a pursuit for purity in music that compensates for a lack of it in life.
Hope you continue to record many a great gig in the future.
Mark
