Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz 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".


11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).


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.

Ruth Lambert @ The Bridge Hotel.

I'd been to the Jazz Café watching/listening to a DVD of Diana Krall Café followed by some bebop piano from Pete Gilligan with Paul Grainger on bass and Ryan on drums. Tough acts for Ruth to follow. However, as can be seen from this poetic review by Jerry Edis, follow it she did.

A devil moon was in the sky,
Up above The Bridge (How High?)
Got some beers, went inside –
Saw the “GASbook” open wide.
Ruth on the mic’ – Zoe on the door,
Splinter@the Bridge was back for more!
Tim, on drums, was setting the pace
Followed by Andy (Ace of Bass).
Graeme from Glasgow (well, Monkseaton)
Was blowin’ hotter than central heatin’!
Paul in “panto-rehab” mode,
Warmed the keys until they glowed!
Ruth on the mic’ – Zoe on the door,
Splinter@the Bridge was back for more!
Ruth did standards then switched over
To B-flat blues and bossanova –
Agua Beber,
Devil May Care –
East Coast / West Coast, take me there!
Ruth on the mic’ – Zoe on the door,
Splinter@the Bridge - come back for more!
