Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".


11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).


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.
