Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

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".


11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).


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.

Sweet & Hot Orchestra @ The Discovery Museum, Newcastle. July 18th

John Carstairs Hallam's Sweet & Hot Orchestra: John Carstairs Hallam (string bass), Brian Chester (keyboards), ? (drums), Gavin Lee (reeds), Jim McBriarty (reeds), Alan Smith (trumpet), ? (trombone). A vintage steam roller, on loan from Beamish Museum, stood outside the Discovery Museum on this the 75th anniversary of the palace of science and engineering. Inside visitors were greeted by the vintage sweet and occasionally hot sounds of the Sweet & Hot Orchestra. Dance band and brass band were the sounds echoing round the cavernous hall housing the Turbinia. A vintage day out. Russell
