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".


11,635 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 770 of them this year alone and, so far, 34 this month (July 9).


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.

Thelonious Monk

Thanks to Claudio Cavalcanti who masterminds the Brazilian blog JAZZofilo I discovered this amazing article about the High Priest of Bebop that appeared in the New York Times last week. A fascinating piece. Click here to read. Also to listen to music and narration. It brought to mind last year's fantastic re-creation of the New York Town Hall Concert at The Sage, Gateshead, by Jason Moran (pictured below with Jason Yarde, alto.)
