Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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".


11,661 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 795 of them this year alone and, so far, 60 this month (July 15).


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. Mito Loeffler.

Guitar enthusiasts must surely be mourning the passing of Mito Loeffler - an outstanding force in contemporary Django inspired Gipsy Jazz. 
Djangophile Kevin Nixon said, "Check out his version of Dark Eyes at the Belleville, absolutely belting. He's got a great party spirit, very Spanish, gitane rather than manouche, reminiscent of flamenco with a very hard hitting right hand. I love players like that, they are so committed, exciting and brave in their playing which I can imagine was an attribute of the great man."
Mito Loeffler died November 6. aged 50.
