Bebop Spoken There

Georgia Cécile: "For me, whether it's an instrumentalist or a singer, they have to be telling a story." - (JazzWisee 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".


11,635 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 770 of them this year alone and, so far, 34 this month (July 9).


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.

Jazz Café Jam

Pete Gilligan (pno), Ray Burns (hca/acc), Eric Stutt (dms), Paul Grainger (bs), Dave Gray (tmb), Alan Law (pno), Matthew Office (gtr), Omid Ramak (Dms) etc.
No singers today - they are at the Bridge tonight - nevertheless there were some nice happenings.
That impetuous, and talented, young trombone player David took Satin Doll around the block 27 times - at the finish he blew a cadenza on a cadenza on a cadenza! This guy is a comer. Not that he had it all his own way - Ray Burns managed to have his say on harp over a considerably shorter number of bars without any loss of immediacy.
Apart from Pete, Alan Laws played good piano and Matt Office had his moments on guitar.
It was a good set, not least because of some pleasant company.
