Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)


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.

Spelk @ The Bridge Hotel. October 7.

Chris Sharkey (guitar), Andy Champion (electric bass) & Adrian Tilbrook (drums)
Left-handed powder blue Fender Strat, Rickenbacker bass, Gretsch drum kit. 
Cymbal crash. Fasten your seat belts. Restless punk-jazz bass lines. 6 string alchemy. 
Concentration etched. Four-fingered fretwork. Destination unknown. 
Jaco and Jack attack Andy attack! Bass snare tom nowhere to run. 
Sharkey hit on a blues. Sharkey shook it off. Sharkey ripped it apart. 
Pedals bass drum and boards. Eyeballs-out workout. 
Chameleon. Chimera. Kamikaze. 
Keep your seat belts fastened. Concede. Submit. Survive.
