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.

Vintage cartoon

Came across this cartoon which I cut out from the Daily Mirror about 40 years ago - I still think it's funny.

Lance, This cartoon is so funny. I think perhaps this is where I'm missing out when I practise my keyboard from my 'Piano Lessons Book One.' The book is by Fanny Waterman and someone else. I believe Fanny Waterman died recently - I wonder how many keybordists in Jazz have her to thank for basic lessons?

PS from Ann Alex. I think I'm wrong about Fanny Waterman being dead. I believe she was on 'Desert Island Discs' the other week but perhaps it amounts to the same thing!

Still going at 90.
