Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).


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".


In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.


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.

Scarborough Update

Tickets really are going well for this year's Scarborough Jazz Festival - Sept 24/25/26. The weekend passes are completely sold out as are the tickets for Saturday evening. I understand tickets for the other two evenings are also evaperating quickly so if you haven't booked yet do so at once and avoid disappointment.

Lance, If I can't get away for at least the sunday, now that I'll be missing the saturday dance, then please write your bestest ever. I want to smell the sea from my laptop. They make up for everything, your words they do.

The Sunday evening is good with the Chet Baker play - 'A Funny Valentine' followed by Alan Barnes plays Alan Barnes - however, if you don't make it then my typing finger(s) will be pickled in brine - the rest of me will just be pickled (joke!)
