Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 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".


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.

A Message From Mike Durham

Dear jazz-lover: next Friday is Bonfire Night of course, but if you fancy some musical fireworks instead of the pyrotechnic variety, get along to the Saville Exchange to see British Jazz Award trumpeter Rico Tomasso with the Swing City Trio (8.00pm, £11/concessions £10). Rico plays wonderful, Armstrong-inspired trumpet and will be swinging mightily on jazz standards and ballads from the twenties and thirties, more than ably backed by Steve Andrews on tenor sax and clarinet, Roly Veitch on guitar and a few vocals and Roy Cansdale on bass. A sensation on their last North East appearance at the Trinity Centre (a sell-out), Rico and the trio are a must-see and I can't recommend them too highly for a supremely entertaining evening - guaranteed to go with a bang!
