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".


11,629 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 764 of them this year alone and, so far, 28 this month (July 8).


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.

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's.

Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Gavin Lee (clt); George Richardson (keys); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
Another fun-filled afternoon at Rosie Malone's with the band in fine form despite being once again trumpetless.
Gavin Lee played simple system clarinet with a fluidity that few can match whilst George Richardson on his new Yamaha keyboard laid down some nice chords behind and dazzling solos up front. The vibes sound could have been created by Hampton himself. Herbie had his moments on harmonica, trombone and vox humana whilst the Humble Mike helped things along with his tastefull drumming on a minimilist kit.
Mr Rudd was his usual solid self and Mrs Rudd gave out with an impeccable version of Just Friends.
To round a perfect afternoon off I won a bottle of wine in the raffle.
