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.

Tony Bennett and KD

I've always been a big fan of Tony Bennett's and am waiting patiently until the 19th September when his new c.d. is released. When checking on Amazon you are given a taste of the album with a recording of him and the wonderful K.D. Lang singing "Blue Velvet" This is the link....                                                                                                                                                               Tony Bennett has a fan site on FB which I naturally joined. I wrote to see if anyone had a recording of one of my all time favourite songs sung by Tony, "How do you say Auf Wiederseh'n" I had the vinyl in the 60's. The album is still in this house (somewhere? but at present I am unable to locate it. Mel Torme does a great job of singing it on one of his c.d.'s but Tony is the man for me. Pity I'm unable to go down to the London Palladium in October to see him again. Alas the £135 for a seat was the deciding factor. Hope you are able to hear "Blue Velvet" as he and K.D. do a wonderful job of it.
