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.

Vieux Carré Jazzmen go AWOL!

There I was on King Street, camera at the ready, all keyed up to hear the VCJ adding to the Xmas festivities. Alas, I heard no banjo strumming and by rights I should have picked up on it 'round 'bout Tyne Dock. Disappointed(ish) I left King Street and drowned my sorrows in the Alum House.
Approaching the Metro an hour or so later I was informed that the VCJ had indeed been playing their unique brand of NOJ so how come I missed them? I don't know - perhaps they'd had a "coffee break".
Sorry guys - missing your King Street session is like waking up and finding Santa has gone to the wrong house!
Maybe next year.
