Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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".


11,661 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 795 of them this year alone and, so far, 60 this month (July 15).


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.

On The Road with Brian Bennett

Just to remind everyone that The Vieux Carre Jazzmen's Christmas Party at The Corner House goes ahead as planned tonight - special guest Neville Hartley, piano and trombone - everyone welcome. Seasons greetings to all our friends and supporters - have a very merry Christmas and 'All the Best' for 2011. Brian.
PS: (Picture) - Sunday 19 December, 2010. Brian Chester, trombone; Paul Susans, Sousaphone; Brian Bennett, banjo and Derek Fleck, clarinet, performing for South Tyneside Council to entertain the multitude of Christmas shoppers and children in South Shields. Ho, ho, ho! It's a great life if your fingers don't freeze.

On second thoughts, Lance, perhaps 'In the Gutter with Brian Bennett' would be a more appropriate heading.
However, it only goes to prove we'll play anywhere for money - won't we Don Fairley?

Looking at the photo there isn't anyone around. Must be the banjo.
