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".


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 Don Friedman

Pianist Don Friedman passed away on June 30. As well as leading his own small groups, Friedman played on many albums with other luminaries such a Buddy Colette, Joe Henderson, John Handy, Clark Terry and many others.
Influenced very much by Bill Evans, Friedman was, nevertheless, his own man.
This obituary come interview  on Jazzwax gives an insight into the man.
Don Friedman was 81.
Sadly missed.
