Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/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".


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.

RIP Peter Appleyard.

Sad to report the death of drummer/vibes player and composer Peter Appleyard. British born but Canada based Appleyard played with Benny Goodman, Sinatra, Tormé, Ella and many others. I seem to recall hearing him at Newcastle's Tyne Theatre with, I think Peanuts Hucko although I could be wrong.
He died yesterday (July 18) aged 84.
Rest In Peace.
