Bebop Spoken There

Kurt Rosenwinkel: "My idea of the perfect vacation is to just stay at home." - (DownBeat 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".


11,626 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 761 of them this year alone and, so far, 25 this month (July 6).


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.

End of year sadness. - Colin Johnson RIP

I have just heard that Colin Johnson who, many will remember played keyboard at the Porthole when Roy or George Laing was off, died suddenly yesterday. He was a good pianist who consistently underrated his talent and Mike Gilby reckoned he had perfect pitch. I know we will miss him at the Porthole on Wednesdays. I am not sure about the funeral arrangements.

Sad news indeed. I only ever heard Colin the once - last Xmas at The Porthole - but I was impressed.
