Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".


11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).


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.

Last "Ride" for Sabian Cymbal creator. RIP Robert Zildjian.

Drummers across the world will today, no doubt, be mourning the passing of Robert Zildjian creator of Sabian Cymbals.
Originally in partnership with his brother Armand Zildjian manufacturing Avedis Zildjian Cymbals, a family feud led to a split with Armand retaining control of the Zildjian brand and Robert forming Sabian.
Robert Zildjian died March 27 aged 89.
