Bebop Spoken There

Freddie Gavita: "I first got into pedals when playing with Mark Fletcher's outfit Fletch's Brew. I felt with the line up I needed a bit of help" - (Jazzwise April, 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".


In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.


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 João Gilberto

Just heard the sad news that Brazilian guitar legend and creator of the bossa nova genre died yesterday (July 6).

Best remembered by jazz fans for his groundbreaking albums with Stan Getz and the hit single The Girl From Ipanema sung by his then wife, Astrid Gilberto, Gilberto was a renowned performer in his own right and an inspiration to many.

Time to dig out the albums.
João Gilberto was 88.
Sadly missed.
