Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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".


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.

R.I.P. John Bunch

Jazz pianist and former accompanist to Tony Bennett, John Bunch died March 30 age 88. 
Trumpet player, Jon-Erik Kelso, brought this to our attention on Facebook.
As well as playing with big bands such as Herman and Goodman, John Bunch recorded more recently with guitarist Bucky Pizzarrelli.
Greatly missed by all lovers of tasteful, harmonically creative piano playing.

Have great memories of chatting with John many times over the years at the Nairn Jazz Festival .... He'll be sadly missed, both as a lovely man, and as a great pianist. gdscotjazz
