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".


11,652 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 787 of them this year alone and, so far, 51 this month (July 13).


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.

One Morning in December

Wandered into one of our local charity shops - CD  "Dave Newton Meets Brian Lemon to play Hoagy Carmichael" - 99p!
"Keep the change", I said as I left for the more (less) serious shopping of the day.
Tell you what if this 1998 disc had been released in 2011 it would have been the one. Great players, great songs.
PS: One Morning in May - what a song - Mel Tormé and Matt Monro also handled this one good! My wife tells me that Dave Weisser once sung it for her at Jim's Two Rooms way back when Jim had two rooms!
