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.

Tonight at Trinity Church - Bob Barnard

Tonight at the Trinity Church and Centre Gosforth promises to be something rather special - Aussie cornetist Bob Barnard with the Swing City Trio. Listen here to his version of Ding Dong Daddy From Dumas - I'm salivating already at the thought of hearing this trumpet/cornet wiz with Steve, Roly and Roy.
For middle period jazz it won't get much better than this, this - or any other - year.
Get yourself to church - I'm Prayin' Humble.
