Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)


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".


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.


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.

Ian Carr Concert Update

LondonJazz have posted details of the Feb 23 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, South Bank Centre, London, concert in celebration of the life of Ian Carr. It should be an evening of epic proportions and I am looking forward to it immensly. Front row seat (A10) no less.
LJ also announce the release of a previously undiscovered session by the Rendell/Carr Quintet.
If the picture on the cover of the CD looks familar it is because it is one taken by former Vieux Carré trombonist Jack Goodwin and subsequently displayed on Bebop Spoken Here where it too was 'discovered' by the producers of the CD and used with Jack's permission.
