Bebop Spoken There

Jeremy Pelt: "I'm so much into melodies and into sound, and the presence of sound, that I don't necessarily want to try to play in between the cracks of a note." - (DownBeat November 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".

Modern Vintage CDs of the Year

Birkett & Fisk play Venuti & Lang.
Pleasure Mad - Live recordings from Mike Durham's International Classic Jazz Party 2017. 
Shake 'em up Jazz Band - A Woman's Place.
Bratislava Hot Serenaders - I Like That.
Lenore Raphael, Wayne Wilkinson & Chris Hodgkins at Pizza Express Live.

Possibly because of the blog name - Bebop Spoken Here - we don't get too many CDs for review that are from or based around, the music of the pre-1940s which is a shame as regular site visitors will know our tastes encompass all forms of jazz, blues, soul and whatever else flies under the above banners whether ancient or modern.

Don't forget, still time to add your memories of 2018 whether of CD, gig, concert or festival - you know where we are.
Lance.
