Bebop Spoken There

Kurt Rosenwinkel: "My idea of the perfect vacation is to just stay at home." - (DownBeat 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".


11,618 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 753 of them this year alone and, so far, 17 this month (July 5).


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.

Calling All Cumbrians

As reported in February, Chicago pianist, Greg Spero plays the London Palladium in a Buddy Rich tribute band on April 2.
In a massive scoop David Gosling has arranged four trio concerts in the north for him.
April 5: Dacre Hall, Lanercost nr. Brampton.
April 7: Zeffirelli's, Ambleside.
April 8: Splinter @ The Bridge, Newcastle.
April 12: Carlisle Jazz Club.
With the American will be Andy Champion on bass and Adrian Tilbrook on drums. For the Lanercost gig the trio will be augmented by Roz Sluman (alto).
Tynesiders will obviously opt for the Splinter gig but over on the other side of the region it is a tremendous and all too rare opportunity for Cumbrians and Lowlanders to catch a top class American talent in intimate surrounds and with three venues to choose from there is no excuse!
Here's a little taste on YouTube.
