Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

Led Bib @ Gateshead International Jazz Festival

Mark Holub's Led Bib returned to Tyneside in a joint promotion between Sage Gateshead and Jazz North East. This was a late night gig sandwiched between a full evening of jazz throughtout Norman Foster's landmark building and an early hours jam session in the Central Bar. The band's two alto front line of Pete Grogan and Chris Williams fired relentlessly, driven along by Holub's youthful pummelling of the drum kit. Electric bassist Liran Donin and keyboards player Toby McLaren sustained their own hard groove. Anyone who likes Acoustic Ladyland or Polar Bear would/should have been there.
