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".

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.

The Ronnie McLean Story

Colin Aitchison has sent me this clipping relating the saga of the late Ronnie McLean's tooth which parted company with Ronnie's mouth whilst he was eating a corned beef sandwich. At the time ('70s) the event received publicity on a par with the end of the war in Vietnam.
Also attached is this mp3 of a Radio Newcastle interview with the trombonist conducted by Richard Pigg. The tooth also features in this one.
Lance.
