Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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".


11,600 (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.

Those City Hall jazz memories...

You were there - Basie, Duke, Ella, Hamp, Herman's Herd and Trane. And then there was Colyer and the three Bs - Barber, Bilk and Ball. Newbies caught Mahavishnu, Weather Report and latterly the Lincoln Center with Wynton. You've got the concert programmes somewhere, haven't you? And there are the photographs and ticket stubs, they're in the loft, aren't they? 

Newcastle City Libraries is preparing another in its popular series of local history books and you are being asked to share memorabilia or simply memories of those great nights at Newcastle City Hall. Tyne Bridge Publishing, the in-house publishing house of Newcastle City Libraries, wants to hear from you. In the first instance email:
