Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz 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".


11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).


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.

Swingin' On The Gate - Humphrey Lyttelton & His Band

This is from a flexi disc that was a free give away with Summer County Margarine in the early to mid 1960's, in the UK, and at the time as a kid I thought this was a great free gift, and if it happened today I would think the same thing.

Thanks Colin. I actually have the very same disc myself. Early '60s yet it isn't in the discographies that I've looked in. Perhaps some Lyttletonian can pin point the date.

Yes Lance, and the line up for the band at the same time, I'm sure we could take a guess, but as you say, a Lyttletonian fan could also give the correct line up, come on chaps, info is needed!!!!

PS. I'm sure many people must remember this wonderful give away, but don't want to show their age !!!!
