Bebop Spoken There

Georgia Cécile: "For me, whether it's an instrumentalist or a singer, they have to be telling a story." - (JazzWisee 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".


11,629 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 764 of them this year alone and, so far, 28 this month (July 8).


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.

Stamps For Swinging Lovers

Received a letter from a friend of mine who lives in New Jersey. She enclosed some commerative stamps re the tenth anniversary of his death on 14 May 1998.
I'm not a stamp collector but I'll certainly keep these.
Ten years - tempus fugits faster than a Buddy Rich drum solo!
Great memories and what a legacy.

I wonder if they are available here, what a great tribute to him. I guess that it was a New Jersey thing though.

I wonder if any of our guys will be honoured in this way?
