Bebop Spoken There

Norah Jones: "The jazz world didn't know what to do, the pop world didn't know what to do. Nobody quite knew what to make of me" - (DownBeat 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".


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.

R.I.P. Al Belletto

New Orleans sax/clarinet player Al Belletto died on Dec. 26. age 86. A versatile musician capable of playing both Dixieland and Bebop who recorded for Capital and also toured with Woody Herman. I'm not over familiar with his music but the respect in which he was held by his peers in New Orleans and far beyond speaks volumes.
He will be sadly missed.
