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.

Jazz Café jam session coda – Francesco sings!

The jam session drew to a close. Pianist Francesco Falconi stood at the mic and sang. My Romance, then Autumn Leaves (scatting in parts). A revelation! Those on the stand with him – apologies for any omissions – featured a cookin’ rhythm section (Alan Law, Paul Grainger and, last to sit in, Russ Morgan), Paul Gowland, Stuart and Fiona Finden and Joe Fowler. The house lights went up. It could/should have gone on ‘til yon time.
