Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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.

100 years of jazz in 90 minutes - Saturday night at the Customs House.

Hi everybody,: this great show is on at the Customs House, Mill Dam, South Shields (main theatre) on Saturday night, starting 8pm. The Jazz Repertory Company band (up from London) includes such jazz stars as Richard Pite on drums and Rico Tomasso on trumpet, and the fast-moving programme covers a lot of musical ground linked by entertaining chat from Mr Pite. Box Office is 0191 454 1234, or book online at
Very nice food in the Green Room bistro, and stunning views across the Tyne from this very pleasant riverfront arts centre, which deserves all the support it can get in these tough times.
Mike Durham.
