Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

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".


12,393 (and counting) posts since we started blogging 12 years ago. 112 of them this year alone and, so far, 112 this month (Jan. 23).

Just wondering if readers know about a website run by Phil Schaap the American jazz historian and obsessive world-wide authority on the life & music of Charlie Parker? Phil broadcasts a programme each week-day called "Birdflight" on US radio station WKCR dedicated to playing & studying all of Bird's recordings from all sources in chronological order.
Each show lasts about 1hr 20mins and some of them can be heard online on (go into the Radio Archives). You will need stamina because Phil can talk (and talk and talk)! He often uses an entire broadcast to disect a tiny detail of Birdlore!
