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.

April 2005 Stan a special friend of the Bacon Family put on his first jazz sessions at Trinity using the River Band led by Liz and Paul Bacon; of the Mississippi Dreamboats. It was recorded live and sponsered by Stan. All proceeds from the CD and the next 6sessions we did there were used towards funding the new beautiful community center the Church now has. Stan encouraged our two children Tom and Emily every week at our local pub and they have now gone on into there own Music/Jazz scene. We had the the honour to play at his last birthday party at Trinity. Stan was truly a great man with a wonderful personality and had a strong faith in God that will take him on into eternity. "R.I.P.
