Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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".


11,661 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 795 of them this year alone and, so far, 60 this month (July 15).


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.

Miles Ahead

The Body of People (BOP for short) bring the jazz theatre dance production Miles Ahead to the Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre next Saturday (May 11). The live band includes such star names as Julian Siegel and Jason Yarde on saxes, Jay Phelps on trumpet, Neil Charles, bass, and Shane Forbes on drums. This provides the inspiration for the dancers who improvise the terpsichore as the musicians improvise the music. As the name implies, the music of Miles Davis is a major factor in the performance.  It promises to be quite an experience!
What it's all about with sound and video clips.
