Bebop Spoken There

Georgia Cécile: "For me, whether it's an instrumentalist or a singer, they have to be telling a story." - (JazzWisee July 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".


11,629 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 764 of them this year alone and, so far, 28 this month (July 8).


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.

Ayanna Top Banana @ The Apollo.

Ayanna Witter-Johnson - jazz improvising cellist - who wowed the audience at The Cluny earlier this year was crowned Super Top Dog at the finals of the Amateur Night Live competition in New York on Wednesday.
Under the roof of the renowned Apollo Theater in Harlem, Ayanna joins a legacy of legendary performers, which include Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Lauryn Hill, Gladys Knight and Luther Vandross, to name a few. Since the theatre opened in 1934, its signature live show has been a definitive career-making opportunity for new talent, and is revered as one of the most celebrated platforms for showcasing up-and-coming performers.
