Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "I asked Bertha [Hope] if she ever used the word "contrafact" to describe the process of writing new tunes over old changes, and she replied, "Of course not. The only people who used that word went to a university to learn about jazz."" - (Jazz Times March 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".

COFID- 19

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.

Today

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.

News of a new weekly jazz evening in central London.

(Press release)

The Boulevard Theatre is London’s newest theatre, based in the heart of Soho, and one element of our programming is a late night programme running Wednesday to Saturday from 10.30pm, after our main theatre show. This consists of West End cabaret, burlesque, improv comedy, mixed bill comedy and of course, jazz curated by Alex Webb (pictured). You can find out more about our lates here.  

For our inaugural jazz evening on Wednesday 6 November, we have vocal jazz extraordinaire David McAlmont with special guest, saxophonist Tony Kofi, supported by our house band, Alex Webb on piano, Pete Hill on drums and Andy Champion on double bass. It’s a very really exciting way to begin the series and we’re obviously keen for the event to be as well attended as possible. Confirmed vocalists for the rest of the series include China Moses, Jo Harrop, Vimala Rowe and Anna Ross.
