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.

Friday 13th strikes....

(Press release)


We're incredibly sorry to let you know that due to the Coronavirus outbreak Danny Jonokuchi will no longer be joining us at Flat Caps Coffee. We're gutted!


The end of his tour in Israel with Eyal Vilner's brilliant New York big band has been cancelled, and Danny is returning to the USA.

However, the show must go on - - plus we have SOLD OUT!!!

We're still going to feature all of Danny's amazing charts, many of which are vocals featuring the fabulous Alice Grace.

Plus, Pete Tanton, Michael Lamb and Gordon Marshall will be stepping up to take on trumpet solo duties in Danny's place.

We know this will be be a disappointment to some, but hope you'll still join us at Flat Caps next Friday for what is going to be a fabulous night of new arrangements.

The set we've been preparing is virtually unchanged and we have a couple of new surprises up our sleeves to make up for Danny's absence.

If, however, you would like a refund on your ticket - that is no problem at all and we completely understand. Please send an e-mail to support@ticketsource.co.uk with your booking reference and they will organise the return of your payment. If we have not heard from you by Wednesday evening, we'll assume you'd still like to attend.

Kind regards,
Michael & the SSBB
