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".


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.


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.

Paul Edis - Live in London

Don't forget that at precisely - well maybe not precisely - 1:00pm today  (March 20) Paul Edis will be giving a one hour solo piano recital on YouTube. This could be the first of many such gigs to appear over the next few days/weeks/months by top musicians. However, one thing is sure, there won't be many, if any, better ones.

PS: Any one else with jazz to stream or offering online tuition please send me the link and it will be posted subject to suitability.

From Ann Alex, Great stuff Paul. Loved especially the Jazz Waltz and the Bach-like ending To All The Things You Are. How do we get an encore? I shouted at the screen!
