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.

ALAN GLEN AT THE CHILLI TONIGHT - A lovely way to spend an evening.

Tonight sees the monthly visit by the Alan Glen Trio to 'The Chilli' - Chillingham Pub, Chillingham Road, Heaton. With John Pope on bass and David Carnegie on drums this is about as close to being note perfect as you're likely to find this side of your Oscar Peterson/Bud Powell CDs.
With the 'Take It To The Bridge' boys opening up and a jam to close I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be.
