Bebop Spoken There

Kurt Rosenwinkel: "My idea of the perfect vacation is to just stay at home." - (DownBeat 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".


11,626 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 761 of them this year alone and, so far, 25 this month (July 6).


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.

Ronnie Scott Celebration on Radio 4

Russell has pointed out to me that on Thursday 3rd December Radio 4 is putting out 'The House that Jazz Built' (11.30.a.m.). A half hour programme celebrating 50 years of Ronnie Scott's.
Mmm - 50 years in half an hour? Perhaps we'll hear Stan Tracey's "Under Condensed Milkwood." Still, when it comes to jazz and the media, 'Beggars can't be choosers" is the expression that springs to mind.
Our mentors, '', just today bemoaned the fact that the London Jazz Festival, the most successful ever, with 250 events in ten days didn't receive any TV coverage. We could equally argue the same re the Sage Gateshead, Scarborough and other jazz festivals.
Perhaps ITV and BBC realise their product is so bad that, as jazz enthusiasts move on a higher plane than day to day TV caters for, they don't bother trying to woo us anymore.
