Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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".


11,644 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 779 of them this year alone and, so far, 43 this month (July 11).


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.

Chris Dagley

One of the swingingest drummers around, Chris Dagley, died in a motorcycle accident returning from a gig at Ronnie's in the early hours.
A regular with Clare Teal I recall seeing him at Customs House, South Shields and Gala Theatre, Durham over the past couple of years.
A former NYJO percussionist he also enlivened many a session at Ronnie Scott's.
LondonJazz had the unfortunate task of breaking the news to a stunned Jazz World.
He was 38 years old.
Rest In Peace.
