Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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".


In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.


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.

A Little Bit of Bebop

Came across this MYSPACE page of Angela J.Elliott - a poet/jazz singer that others may care to check out.
Three titles to play or download including the above which is a delightful Blossom Dearie/Annie Ross style vocal. Also, there is "The Day Lee Morgan Died" which I have referred to in previous posts. This is done as a poem set to Morgan's "The Sidewinder" and describes in a poetically graphic manner the events of that fateful day.
Her band, "Special Edition" are on all tracks and get a great jazz/funk feel.
