Bebop Spoken There

Chris Higginbottom: "For me, I'm always happiest after a day of practice and a good gig (remember those?)." - (Jazzwise July 2020)

Johnny Mandel: "You know something? Any time you add horns to a rock rhythm section, it's going to sound like Blood, Sweat and Tears - and there's no way around it." - (Crescendo March 1970).

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".


11,600 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 735 of them this year alone and, so far, 3 this month (July 1).


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 crowdfunding on Northumberland Street - August 28

Bagging the prime pitch outside of Fenwick's, Proper Buzzin' set about raising a few quid - perhaps a recording session is in the offing. Katy Trigger in pink shorts (see photo) gave 'Showtime' David Gray a run for his money in the natty summer attire stakes as the entertaining trio won applause from shoppers munching on sausage rolls ('proper' or vegan) as pennies from heavenly passers-by helped swell the coffers.
