Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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".

Today

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.

RIP Jim Perry

I received the sad news yesterday that Jim Perry passed away on March 19 - age 97. Jim was an ever present photographer on the Newcastle Jazz Scene in the 1960s and a display of his work was on show in the Corner House, Heaton for many years. More recently he had an exhibition at one of The Sage, Gateshead, Jazz Festivals.
To get an idea of the quality of his pictures visit his Flickr page.
Sadly missed - he was a legend.
