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.

CD Review. Renegade Brass Band - Radio Rebelde.

Hot on the heels of last night's Hoochie Coochie gig comes this EP/CD - Radio Rebelde.
It's a belter of a disc featuring much of last night's material capturing perfectly the mood of the music. In many ways this has the advantage over the live set inasmuch as I can actually make out the hip hop lyrics on the disc and clever they are too.
The ensemble sound is powerhouse plus - with 3 trumpets, 2 trombones and 1 tenor sax in the front line it couldn't be anything other. Add the congas, sousaphone, drums and the mysterious DJ Scratcher and the result is an hypnotic rhythm that goes straight to your feet - get up and boogie boys.
The arrangements are first class absorbing the soloists into the structure without loss of tension.At a fiver it's a steal.
Visit and listen to Barrio.
