Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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.

R.I.P. Beryl Davis

Beryl Davis died Oct. 28 aged 87. A long time favourite of mine she made her first records at the age of 15 with Django and Stephane. During the Second World War she recorded many sides with Grappelli's Quintette, Miller's AEF Band and later with her father's band (Oscar Rabin and his Orchestra co-leader Harry Davis). After the war Beryl moved to the States where she had a successful career including a stint on the Hit Parade radio show with Frank Sinatra.
Here is Undecided one of the tracks recorded with the Hot Club. And in later years...
Sadly missed.
