Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (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".


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.

ACV - Splinter @ The Bridge

Graeme Wilson (ten/bar), Paul Edis (keys), Andy Champion (bs), Mark Williams (gtr), Adrian Tilbrook (dms).
An excellent turnout for an excellent band who, as expected, delivered the goods.
On some numbers, ACV coax and caress before exploding with an orgasmic release into a glorious cacophony of sound.
On others, the crescendo precedes the diminuendo lulling us, the listener, into a brief feeling of tranquillity before being thrown once more into the musical maelstrom.
Driven on by Adrian - who erupts like a mad metronome on methadone - the soloists take a trip. Mark to Clapton, Graeme on a 'Trane, Paul flying a virtual Hammond B3 and Champion the Wonder Bass walking the dog - sometimes an Afghan Hound other times a snarling Pit Bull - till it could walk no more.
Great stuff and who cares that it's as much rock 'n funk as it is jazz - whatever that is in this day and age - check out their CD Fail In Wood on the Jazzaction label.
