Bebop Spoken There

Dee Dee Bridgewater: "We found out that the estate doesn't allow any lyrics to Coltrane's music" - (DownBeat April, 2020).


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".


In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.


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...
