Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz 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".


11,600 (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.

What the **** did I do? You want to know sumpin' 'bout that floozie Pearl?
She ain't so darn nice!

Pearl said...

For starters, honey, you always want to do, what the boys don't want to do.
I mean to say - When you strut your stuff around - OMG London Bridge is falling down!
Another thing, Lulu. When you get blue, frankly, you go cuckoo Like a clock up on the shelf - you're the kind of smartie that breaks up every party.
Hullabalooloo, guys don't bring Lulu.
She'll come by herself - she always does!
And goes home the same way I might add!

Lulu said...

Pearlie babe,just ask your friend Rose how she got her turned up nose - you might end up with the same.
Lulu (undefeated 20 fights.)

Pearl said...

Oh Yeah?
Well meet me tonight in Dreamland!

Lulu said...

I'll be around

Rose said...

I wanna be around to pick up the pieces when somebody breaks your nose like you broke mine.
