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.

There's a dance pavilion in the rain...

...yes it seemed like Early Autumn in Heaton Park as the Chilli Road Band unleashed their brand of street funk on a rain sodden audience. This was part of the Heaton Festival and the weather didn't seem to deter the local residents who listened, occasionally danced and partook of the various stalls.
The band were undercover (ish) in front of the pavilion so we remained relatively dry as we swam out to Canteloupe Island for a Moon Dance but, unlike the final number, it was anything but Hot, Hot, Hot.
Still it went well the only sting in the tail being the change from light shower to torrential dowmpour as we packed the gear away. To make matters worse I exited by the wrong gate to where my car was parked which meant an even longer walk in the rain!
So apologies to John Hallam and Roly Veitch but I won't be venturing forth anymore today,
