Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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".


11,652 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 787 of them this year alone and, so far, 51 this month (July 13).


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.

Christmas has come a little late this year

Last October I had some business to attend to in London. During the course of which I bumped into a jovial Irishman browsing, like myself, the jazz books in Skoob Books just up from Russell Square tube station.

He gave me his card - Nigel Mooney - and mentioned he had a CD coming out. To my shame, I didn't follow it up until today when I, once more, came upon his business card.
I checked out his website and discovered he'd released his album on November 27 - a Christmas album! Not quite what I expected! Nevertheless, I listened to a track and it blew my mind!
This was the best Christmas song of them all - move over Irving Berlin!

A belated Merry Christmas Nigel see you in the bookshop - same time next (this) year!
