Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 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".


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, South Shields. Thursday Sept 1.

Olive Rudd (vcl); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (clt/sop/vcl); George Richardson (keys); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Another fine Thursday afternoon at Rosie's with all participants in good form.
Herbie excelled on Lazy River using all three of his chosen forms of expression. Jimmy sang If I Only Had a Girl and he too, during the course of the afternoon, split himself three-ways. On keys, George produced a multitude of voices and, talking about 'voices' Olive sang Can't Help Loving That Man of Mine who just happened to be playing bass!
Mike proved that less can be more on his minimalist drum kit.
It was another splendid afternoon at Rosie Malone's.
