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.

Bebopp Danced There

I'm grateful to George Watt for this blast from the past.
The Imperia Palais De Danse was originally the Imperial PDD but, after a fire, the owners found that the restructured facade didn't have enough room to refit the old letters so they dropped the L and it became the Imperia.
To compensate, it would appear they added an extra P to Bebop.
