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".


11,652 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 787 of them this year alone and, so far, 51 this month (July 13).


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 Cedar Walton.

Jazz pianist Cedar Walton died earlier today at his home in Brooklyn. Walton was a superb pianist in the post hard bop style - who made many albums both as leader and sideman. Sonny Criss' album Up Up and Away contains some of Walton's best work in a supportive, but not subdued role.. I was knocked out when I heard him at Ronnie's as part of the 2011 London Jazz Festival. A truly memorable session and I'd hoped to hear him live again - Sadly, that's not going to happen.
Cedar Walton was 79.
