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.

CDs of the Year (Legends) – Lance

These are recordings by musicians who have made their mark on jazz history. Some are still with us, others are with us only in the legacy of the music they left behind but whose spirit lives on.

Ahmad Jamal – Ballades.
Buddy Rich – Just in Time: The Final Recordings.
Ernie Watts Quartet – Home Light.
Ethan Iverson Quartet w. Tom Harrell – Common Practice.
Greg Abate w. the Tim Ray Trio – Gratitude.
John Coltrane – Blue World.
Hendrik Meurkens – Cobb’s Pocket.
