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".


11,618 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 753 of them this year alone and, so far, 17 this month (July 5).


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.

Mark Williams Trio @ The Bridge. Sept 4th

Mark Williams (guitar), Paul Susans (electric bass) & Richard Brown (drums)
Summer over, Splinter back in action, it was time to reconvene at the Bridge Hotel..A first class pint of Hook Norton in hand and no better way to resume the weekly session than to book the one and only Mr.Mark Williams. Guitarist Williams teamed up with friends Paul Susans and Richard Brown to pick a few tunes and give them a blast. A swinging original number, a Pat Metheny composition, a ballad, searing fusion fret-work, killer chords and a shuffle blues made this an evening for lovers of contemporary guitar. Bassist Susans was in fine form with that wonderful Jaco sound. Richard Brown has taken the drum chair from the departed David Carnegie and on this showing it is his for good. The set concluded with the gargantuan Minor Detail. From the pen of Williams, it could quite easily feature in ACV's set list. A good start to the autumn season. 
Next Sunday - 11th September - Elaine Binney brings in her Jazz Rascals.
