Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 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".


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.

Vieux Carré Jazzmen @ The Corner House

Peter Wright (tpt), Barry Soulsby (clt/alt/vcl), Lawrence McBriarty (tmb), Terry Harvey (bjo/gtr), Brian Sibbald (bs), Fred Thompson (dms/vcl).
Part of me was still at the funeral when the VC 'boys' kicked off with "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone" - somehow it seemed appropriate.
Brian Bennett was on holiday so Terry Harvey was in the banjo/guitar chair chording nicely on the latter instrument for "I'm Confessin' ". It was a routine sort of session with no real highs but, then again, no lows. In between tunes, Barry's impromptu burst on, I think, "Carnival of Venice" was worthy of a full blown feature.
