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.

Preview: Jazz North East presents:IG HENNEMAN’S KINDRED SPIRITS Friday 3rd Dec 8.00pm Gateshead Old Town Hall

From Paul Bream's 'Jazz Alert':
Ab Baars (reeds); Axel Dorner (trumpet); Lori Freedman (clarinet & bass clarinet); Ig Henneman (viola); Marilyn Lerner (piano); Wilbert de Joode (bass) Last Friday, caught unawares by the late evening blizzard, I had to walk five miles home after the Killer Shrimp gig. Not a pleasant experience, but for this Kindred Spirits gig I’d willingly cover twice the distance, and, if absolutely necessary, swim across the Tyne. I might perish of hypothermia, but I’m sure I’d go out with a smile on my face. Ig Henneman, Ab Baars and Wilbert de Joode are leading members of the Amsterdam scene, Lori Freedman and Marilyn Lerner are Ig’s partners in the all-woman Dutch/Canadian trio Queen Mab, while Germany’s Axel Dorner is a new collaborator brought in specially for a short European tour in celebration of Ig’s 65th Birthday. After their first rehearsal, on Monday of this week, Ab wrote that “Ig has written strong, wonderful & touching music. Group sounds great, lots of colours and breath, wide open improvisations.” So this is a unique and unmissable gig, and it’s of huge credit to Tyneside and the local audience that Ig wanted to bring the sextet here, putting us in the same league as major cities like Prague, Cologne and Munich – so let’s not disappoint her. Because of the weather conditions, Jazz North East are aiming to get things finished by 10.15 at the latest, but my bet is that we’ll all wish it could go on much, much longer.
Paul Bream.
