Bebop Spoken There

Georgia Cécile: "For me, whether it's an instrumentalist or a singer, they have to be telling a story." - (JazzWisee 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".


11,635 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 770 of them this year alone and, so far, 34 this month (July 9).


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.

Geoff Hutchinson

Alan Rudd kindly drew my attention to this article in the Evening Chronicle on Friday April 30.
It tells the fascinating story of blind drum tutor Geoff Hutchinson, son of former Panama Jazzmen drummer, Teddy Hutchinson.
Interesting reading including a photo of one of Geoff's star pupils - John Hirst well known in local jazz circles and surely destined for greater things - I hadn't realised that John had studied at Berklee in Boston, Mass.
