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.

What do Whitley Bay Jazz Festival tickets - and Hot Cakes have in common?

Mike Durham, director of July's Whitley Bay Jazz Festival informs me that they have now sold almost a third of the tickets, and almost all to people from outside the region, and that is with the full band line-up only just announced and before they mailshot their 1,000-plus mailing list.
He suggests, and wisely I think, that the local jazz fans might want to book ahead (or even now!) rather than turning up on the day, as many have done in past years - they may not be able to get in!
