Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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".


11,652 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 787 of them this year alone and, so far, 51 this month (July 13).


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.

When It's Sleepy Time (not) Down South Shields

Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
Even without Ray Harley - back in Portugal - the gang blew up a storm on this very hot afternoon. The music matched the temperature.
Herbie wailed on harp producing notes he didn't learn from Larry Adler as well as some trombone he did pick up from Kid Ory onwards.
Jim McBriarty should be paid double! Clarinet players in Dixie bands not only have to play official solos they also, in effect, solo during the ensembles! Bravo Jim.
Piano, bass and drums can lay claim to being the world's most solid Dixie rhythm section.
And Olive!
Well she wrapped her troubles in dreams, locked away her heart and threw away the key yet still was able to wax eloquent about the prevailing blue skies.
Perfect summer's day.
