Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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".


11,644 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 779 of them this year alone and, so far, 43 this month (July 11).


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.

Proper Buzzin' @ Monument

Today (Wednesday) Katy Trigger and the boys were proper buzzin' as they pumped up the volume during a crowdfunding session ahead of their support slot on the Broken Brass Ensemble's album launch gig at Cobalt Studios. 

Proper Buzzin' entertained Newcastle city centre's lunchtime shoppers with a street-funk treatment of Donna Summer's I Feel Love and other dance floor fillers. Catch the band this Sunday (Feb 10) at Cobalt Studios on Boyd Street down in the Ouseburn Delta. See BSH's right-hand gig list column for details.
