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.

Partisans - Prologue.

This month's "Schmazz @ The Cluny" (Tuesday June 30) presents Partisans (Julian Siegel (ten/sop), Phil Robson (gtr), Thad Kelly (bs), Gene Calderazzo (dms)). For those of you still undecided upon forking out the not unreasonable £7/£5/£3 follow this link to LondonJazz for a review of the latest gig. If reading that doesn't inspire you to attend then 'Jack you're dead'.
As fortune has it I won't make it myself (I'm heading south as Partisan heads north - perhaps we could wave to each other 'round 'bout Doncaster).
This is going to be a seriously good gig. I May be listening to Tina and Robin Aspland whilst Parisan are Schmazzing.
