Bebop Spoken There

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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

Today

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.

Jazz Clubs Worldwide

The most comprehensive listings of jazz clubs worldwide can be found here. I'm proud to say that Bebop Spoken Here is amongst the listings as are Blaydon and Ashington Jazz Clubs.
To add your venue please follow the above link. It could pay off. The next time the night ferry from Amsterdam docks at North Shields instead of asking how to get to The Metro Shopping Centre the passengers will want directions to the Saville or the Porthole or the Crescent Club (providing they like banjos).

Hi Lance

Great that Bebop Spoken Here is listed. However, a word of caution...many of the venues listed in the north ceased presenting jazz gigs years ago (somewhat out of date!!!)

This is an ongoing problem with any listing - Jazz UK being a typical example. Organisers are always keen to be listed but never think of passing on the info when the venture nosedives. I have pointed out some local 'goners' to the website organiser.
The answer is of course to ring up first if you are unsure.
