Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (DownBeat June 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".


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.

HCW - Splinter @ The Bridge

John Hirst (dms), Edd Carr (gtr), Christos Worsley (bs).
Splinter's policy of featuring a variety of bands seems to be working - each band bringing its own following who, hopefully, come back to catch other bands.
HCW pulled a decent crowd tonight and deservedly so. Since I first heard them at the Side Café 2/3 years back they have progressed as individuals and as a band,
Playing mainly original material they approach each tune with an almost suicidal attack plunging into the unknown. It is a journey to end all e journeys but they usually arrive home safely.
John Hirst's drum technique continues to evolve. Some of his solos tonight were breathtaking in their complexity. Likewise, Edd Carr is blowing just about everybody away in the jazz-rock field and Christos, less showy but musically as effective, impressed with his contributions on five string bass guitar (Christos uses a seven string lead and John played a relatively straight forward kit).
They have an E.P. due out that, despite its current elusiveness, should delight their following when it becomes available.
Watch out for HCW - they're on their way.
