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.

Rosier than ever at Rosie's with the Maine Street Jazzmen.

Olive Rudd (vcl), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Jim McBriarty (clt), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
It was standing room only today at Rosies. The good weather, World Cup euphoria, and a band that plays the best jazz south of the North Shields' Levee possibly the contributory factors along with Everard's Tiger ale.
Even without Ray on trumpet the band generated a tremendous sound albeit, at times, they strayed from Dixieland to Skiffleland (It Takes a Worried Man..). Great afternoon.
Olive excelled on June Night, I Got Rhythm, Swing That Music and - directed at me personally - I Wished on the Moon (sigh...).
As always, Malcolm Armstrong played his brand of Ralph Sutton, Bob Zurke, to great effect - man of the match today.
It was one of those days when you wanted the whole world to hear what was going on in South Shields but, although I tried, my non iphone failed miserably.
