Bebop Spoken There

Georgia Cécile: "For me, whether it's an instrumentalist or a singer, they have to be telling a story." - (JazzWisee 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".


11,629 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 764 of them this year alone and, so far, 28 this month (July 8).


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.

Take it to The Bridge Xmas Party. The Chillingham, Heaton.

Dave Weisser (Fluglehorn/Vocals/Percussion), Kevin Eland (Trumpet), Paul Edis (Alto Sax/Clarinet), Jeff Smith (Tenor Sax) Barry Ashcroft/Harley Johnson (Keys), Lloyd Wright (Guitar), Ivan Scutt/Jonathan Proud (5 string bass) and David Francis/Michael Howard (Drums).
 Repertoire included Secret Love, On Green Dolphin Street, Straight No Chaser and Alice in Wonderland. Solos were elegant and imaginative at times, particularly from the Legohead team. Audience numbers were reasonable and there was plenty of Dave's infamous apple cake to pass around.
