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.

Jack Hamilton @ La Bodega, Morpeth.

We had a quick visit to La Bodega Bar/Restaurant in Morpeth last night. Some folks may remember it as the Black and Grey pub. All we knew was that Jack Hamilton is the house pianist there every Thursday night. I had spoken on the phone to the owner, a lady called April.
As we arrived Jack was accompanying April who was singing a couple of numbers from the great American songbook. including My Funny Valentine. I look forward to hearing her sing again. She was fantastic, with great arrangements from Jack. He also did a wonderful job of my request, my favourite The Shadow of Your Smile.As a matter or interest April is looking to book jazz orientated bands.
