Bebop Spoken There

Kurt Rosenwinkel: "My idea of the perfect vacation is to just stay at home." - (DownBeat 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".


11,626 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 761 of them this year alone and, so far, 25 this month (July 6).


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.

Preview: Ojay...from street to gallery!

In today's early spring sunshine Newcastle's jazz funk street bassist Ojay was heard laying down multiple looping layers of sound under the watchful eye of Earl Grey. Today, Monument, next week, in the shadow of Durham Cathedral, Outstanding Art. Yes, Ojay will be jumping aboard a mainline train to Durham to play a return engagement at the North Road contemporary art gallery. 

Ojay's previous gig at the swish Durham gallery almost went disastrously wrong when he boarded a north bound train. Alighting Berwick, a south bound train got our man to Durham one hour late! Next week, Saturday 14, it's likely Ojay will make it on time for an eight o'clock start. It's free admission, take the D (Durham) Train and enjoy a white wall evening of Ojay's street jazz funk.
