Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 2020).


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.

SNJO in New York/Canada - and, on Monday, Durham!

If you're on Facebook check out these awesome photos of Tommy Smith and the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra in New York and Canada. Don't forget they head for Durham's Gala Theatre (by way of Romania) next Monday July 8 to present their Ellington program In The Spirit of Duke.
A concert not to be missed.
For those doubters - CD review. (It's still got it's nose in front as my CD of the year)
