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.

New Gil Evans Project.

Just wondering if anyone's aware of a project in the U S involving the music of Gil Evans? A guy called Ryan Truesdell has been given access to all of Gil's manuscripts & charts by Anita & Miles(Gil's wife & son). There is a huge amount of previously unheard & unrecorded music of Gil's which has been gathering dust since his death. The idea is that the best of all the material is to be recorded (starting in 6 weeks time) and a CD will be released on May 13th 2012 which would be Gil's 100th birthday ! Apparently there's material from different phases of Gil's career - ie The Thornhill Years, New Bottles Old Wine era, The Monday Night at Sweet Basil Orch etc. Anyone interested in following this up can find everything here.
