Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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".


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.

Goodbye Ed Thigpen.

The sad news has just come through that Ed Thigpen, for many years drummer with the Oscar Peterson Trio, died on Jan 13 in Copenhagen.
I think Ed was possibly Oscar's first regular trio drummer - prior to this he usually worked with bass and guitar.
I remember seeing them several times at Newcastle City Hall and Ed was perhaps the perfect small group drummer - never overpowering but always there to go wherever Peterson's improvisations took him (and vice versa). I also heard him with Ella.
Ed died age 79.
