Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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".


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.

George Shearing 89 not out

Many happy returns to one of the greatest - from Liz.

An amazing man and a great musician. I think , back in the 1940's and 1950's, the Shearing Quintet opened a door that allowed many to ease into a world they may have otherwise stayed clear of.
I still remember with a great deal of pleasure hearing George with Mel Tormé at the Royal Festival Hall.
Carmen McRae was on the bill too!

What a line up! one of my huge regrets is that I never managed to see Mel live.
