Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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.

This latest addition to the Posters and Programmes album is courtesy of Ashington Jazz Club's John Taylor.
Marian Montgomery was a regular visitor to the area and, at the time, Andy Hudson was Director of the Newcastle Festival. Note the late Jeff Klyne (sic) among the line-up.

And the great Phil Lee. One of my favourite guitarists. Was it John Horler who called him 'the Bill Evans of the guitar'.
