Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".


11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).


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.

Tonight at the CLUNY

Not 1 but 2 bands - well, to be precise, maybe 1.75. Paul Bream - old Schmazzmo himself - states that Tony Buck drums with both bands. However, the official Schmazz postcard quotes Toby Hall as drummer with Australians - the ALISTER SPENCE TRIO - Alister on piano, Joe Williamson, bass and Toby Hall (or TB) on drums. You can hear a sample here. BEVAN, MORRIS, LASH & BUCK are Tony Bevan on tenor and - wait for it - BASS SAX! From the US of A, Joe Morris on guitar, Don Lash is on bass and the aforementioned Tony Buck, also from "down under", is "up and over" and definitely on drums. Tickets are £10/£8 (unwaged)/£5 (studs. and means tested benefits). Or £7/5/3 depending where your info comes from. Sounds like a good, albeit confusing, night is in prospect in this Schmazz/Jazz North-East co-promotion. Lance.
