Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".


11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).


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.

Rebecca Parris on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz

Marian McPartland's guest on this December 2008 program is Rebecca Parris; a singer first brought to my attention by Zoe and Hilary Gilby. (Photo: l-r. Zoe, Rebecca and Jeannie Bryson. Courtesy of Hilary) Click here to listen.90 year old Marian plays a very emotive piano version of "These Foolish Things" that belies her age. More emotion when Rebecca sings "This Is Always".
Zoe, incidentally, is on at Side Café 2 Feb.
