Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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".


11,661 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 795 of them this year alone and, so far, 60 this month (July 15).


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 @ Blaydon Looks Good.

It has been a long time - too long is the general consensus - since Dave Cliff and Geoff Simkins have played Blaydon Jazz Club. That long wait comes to an end tonight when guitarist Dave and altoist Geoff return to play a session with David Carnegie on drums and Neil Harland on bass.
North-east born Dave has long been a stalwart of the London scene capable of fitting in with bands of all genré from Alex Welsh to Peter Ind/Warne Marsh/Lee Konitz.
Geoff, reminiscent at times of early Art Pepper, can be both lyrical or fiery as the piece demands. In the company of local heroes Neil and David it promises to be another night to remember at Blaydon.
