Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz 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".

Today

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 Harry Pitch


Harmonica virtuoso Harry Pitch who died on July 15 provided the soundtrack to many films and TV programmes including Last of the Summer Wine. However, his true love was jazz, starting out as a trumpet player in the 1950's leading a London based big band and going on to perform with the likes of Bill Le Sage and Jack Emblow.
Harry Pitch (perfect name for a musician!) was 90.
May he rest in peace,
Lance.
PS: Thanks to Liz, our Lady in York, for bringing this to my attention and also John Cooper.
