Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).


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.

Darlington's The Place to be - Tomorrow Night.

Another post-bop special at Darlington Arts Centre with the Steve Melling - Clark Tracey Septet.
Mark Armstrong (tpt), Barnaby Dickinson (tmb), Simon Allen & Dave O'Higgins (saxes), Steve Melling (pno), Geoff Gascoyne (bs), Clark Tracy (dms) are described by Paul Bream as "The cream of UK's bop aristocracy" and that's good enough for me.
See you there (Row E).
Lance. PS: For those with more historical interests, New Orleans Heat play a lunchtime set (12.30) at the same venue.
