Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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".


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.

Piano Jazz Xmas Tracks

Readers of this blog will know how much I love Marian McPartland and the show she hosted - Piano Jazz. I'm sure that if I'd actually met Marian I'd have fallen in love with her too! although, after reading the marvellous biography of Marian by Paul de Barros - Shall We Play That One Together? - I would have had strong competition.  This link has a duo with Marian and George Shearing doing Let It Snow. Listen to the chords she lays down on Good King Wenceslas!
Long Live Good Queen Marian!
