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".


11,618 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 753 of them this year alone and, so far, 17 this month (July 5).


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.

Jambusters @ The Jazz Café

From Central Bar my feet were down-trodden and I was heavy laden having downed a pint of Bitter and Twisted in about 0.3 seconds outside of the record for downing a pint of Bitter and Twisted.
At the Jazz Café The Dambusters was the film of the week and it brought back a few memories - not least because I once met a guy who'd actually been on the raid.
As the film drew to it's question posing close (The chap who actually invented the 'Bouncing Bomb' that did the damage said that, had he known we would lose 56 airmen, he wouldn't have invented it.)
The credits rolled and the live music got underway.
Body and Soul was lugubrious - sorry guys but it dragged and the drummer who sat in didn't help.
Things picked up when Omid took over and Andy Lee blew some impressive flute on There Will Never Be Another You. Stu was good on tenor and Fiona did some nice chanting. Fi gets better every time I hear her.
