Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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 Dennis Farnon

Tony Roberts sent me the sad news that Dennis Farnon had passed on. Whilst I was familiar with his elder brother Bob Farnon who made many contributions to both jazz and light music - his album with Sinatra is a gem - I knew little of his younger sibling. However, as this Wiki link reveals, he too had an equally rewarding career - film and tv soundtracks - not to mention being part of the group that inaugurated the Grammy Awards.

The legend that was Dennis Farnon passed away on May 31, aged 95.
Rest In Peace.
