Bebop Spoken There

Tony Kofi: "I bought myself an alto saxophone and learned from mum's record collection Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Doris Day" - (Jazzwise April, 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.

R.I.P. HUEY LONG of the Inkspots

Huey Long, until June 10 the last surviving member of the legendary vocal group The Inkspots, died on that day this week aged 105. As well as playing the distinctive guitar intros to the groups' records, Long also played on a number of sessions in the mid '40s with boppers such as Fats Navarro and Lockjaw Davis. Not many jazz/show biz folk hang around for as long as Huey did. Perhaps "Long" was short for Longevity.
