Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".


11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).


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.

St Valentine's Day Double Diva Delight Tonight.

Tonight - St. Valentine's Day no less - has the Zoe Gilby Quintet as this week's "Splinter @ The Bridge" gig. Zoe will front her usual suspects in the form of Andy Champion (bs), Ric Brown (dms), Graeme Wilson (ten) and Mark Williams (gtr). Zoe starts doing it at 7:30/7:45 pm. -----
Down the road a'piece at the Bascule Bar, St Peter's Basin the Ruth Lambert Trio will also be wooing the Valentine Faction. With Ruth will be Paul Gamblin (gtr) and Paul Susans (bs).
This is going to be a tough choice. However, that mother of Invention Russell has pointed out that by judiciously throwing one's self down Dog Leap Stairs one could then catch the Link Bus along the Quayside to that part of the Tyne Riviera known as St Peter's Basin and thus grab a set from both girls.
