Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (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".


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.

Preview: Josh Duffee goes in search of Bix Beiderbecke (Thursday, April 9)

(By Russell)

A live stream event with a difference is in store as we're invited to join Josh Duffee's driving tour of historic sites in Davenport, Iowa. The 'historic' aspect refers to the hangouts, venues and other locations associated with Leon Bismark Beiderbecke. On Thursday evening (17:00 GMT) classic jazz-era drummer, friend of, and key participant in Mike Durham's International Classic Jazz Party, Duffee will be visiting sites across his - and Bix's - home town.

There is little, if anything, Josh doesn't know about Bix and it'll be fascinating to see where he takes us. So, Josh will be out and about for a couple of hours or so from11:00am CDT - that's 5:00pm our time. This is one travel programme jazz fans will not want to miss - checkout Josh's Facebook for details of Bix Beiderbecke - A Driving Tour Around Davenport. Link.
