Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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".


11,652 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 787 of them this year alone and, so far, 51 this month (July 13).


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.

Arts Council Swings The Axe - Again

The Arts Council, in its wisdom - or lack of  - has swung one of its many axes in the direction of the popular free magazine JazzUK causing it to be reduced from 64pp to 32pp as of the next issue (No.104) due out on April 1.
Presumably the powers that be consider a small, free, jazz magazine to be inconsequential - after all Editor Roger Thomas hasn't been involved in any phone hacking scandals so he and his magazine can hardly be worth the small subsidy - or so these men in suits must think.
The unfortunate thing is that this comes less than a year after the swingeing cuts to Jazz UK's parent organisation, Jazz Services.
Be interesting to find out what cuts have been applied to other art forms...
