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.

Snippets from Russell.

One or two snippets of news... Newcastle's City Library is hosting an exhibition of photographic prints by Jimmy Forsyth (documentary photographer par excellence of Newcastle and its citizens of the last half-century). One print of interest to jazz fans is The Royal Arcade, 1960 - clearly visible is the entrance/facade of the Newcastle Jazz Club ! The prints on show are just some of the many images in Mr.Forsyth's new book ''Jimmy Forsyth: Photographs from the 1950s and 1960s''. Published by Newcastle Libraries imprint Tyne Bridge Publishing in association with Tyne & Wear Archives.ISBN 978 185795 132 2. £8.99., paperback. Tuesday's Independent runs an obituary of Eddie Bo (New Orleans jazz & blues pianist). Djangology's gig this Thursday at Hexham's Queen's Hall is a sell-out !
