Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz 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".


11,612 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 747 of them this year alone and, so far, 11 this month (July 3).


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.

My First Ever Jazz Record Request.

Alyn Shipton, on BBC Radio 3's Jazz Record Requests, kindly played my suggestion for a record to remember the late Teddy Charles by. Vibraphonist Charles, who died last month, is featured on Wardell Gray's Paul's Cause. It's about 53 minutes into the program. 
Russell, who told me that it had been played also drew my attention to the second disc played - Nikki Yanofsky's  version of Ella's famous recording of Mr Paganini , recorded when Ms Yanofsky was only 16, it stands up well against Ella's version.
