Bebop Spoken There

Kurt Rosenwinkel: "My idea of the perfect vacation is to just stay at home." - (DownBeat 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".


11,626 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 761 of them this year alone and, so far, 25 this month (July 6).


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.

The Sage Gateshead Jazz Festival Preview - Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra w. Jason Yarde.

Already there is a buzz about this years Festival - the sixth - that wasn't there this early in previous years. On my recent trip to London several people mentioned it to me which bodes well.
The concert previewed here is a truly mouth watering combination. Those who recently saw Jason Yarde with the VOTNJO at Darlington will know what to expect. For those that didn't, such as myself, I can't wait. Directed and conducted by John Warren who supplies much of their repertoire the band contains a lot of the north-east's big hitters such as Lewis Watson, Paul Edis, Andy Champion et al. Add Jason Yarde and it is a recipe for musical success of the very highest calibre.
Jason Yarde, you may remember, played a major role in the Thelonious Monk Town Hall Project presented at the Sage last year - or was it the year before? Whatever, it was a night to rememember and not least because of Jason's alto solos.
Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra with Jason Yarde. Sat Mar. 27 Hall Two. 6:00 pm. £7.
Tickets for all concerts from The Sage Box Office, or by telephone 0191 4434661, or online
PS: There's a Festival preview in the March edition of The Crack.
