Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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".


11,644 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 779 of them this year alone and, so far, 43 this month (July 11).


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.

Monk @ Town Hall - the Charles Tolliver Tentet

Our favourite poetess, lyricist, vocalesee, Angela J. Elliott has kindly pointed me in the direction of this jazz site which includes a recreation of Monk's Town Hall Concert by the Charles Tolliver Tentet. 87 minutes in a Monastery garden of delights. Click here. Don't be deterred by the long-winded pre-music talk - the wait is worthwhile.
PS: Stanley Cowell comes out of the blue mist as Monk.

Hi Lance

Well worth a listen. Marcus Strickland on tenor was impressive.
