Bebop Spoken There

Tony Kofi: "I bought myself an alto saxophone and learned from mum's record collection Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Doris Day" - (Jazzwise April, 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.

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.
