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.

Hersch, Montague & Taylor

Familiar names pop up across BBC Radio today (Saturday) starting at lunchtime as Soweto Kinch talks Music Life: the influence of Family on the World Service (12:05pm). From his Pennsylvania home pianist Fred Hersch performs an exclusive lockdown session for J to Z (Radio 3, 5:00pm) and at eight o'clock this evening over on Radio 2 Jamie Cullum's at Home Cheltenham Special features music from artists who were scheduled to appear this weekend at the spa town's annual jazz festival. At 9:00pm there is, in classic BBC-speak, another chance to hear Randy Crawford in concert at 2018's Cheltenham Jazz Festival. 

Last, but by no means least, two local lads (that's local to Tyneside) feature on Corey Mwamba's Freeness (midnight, Radio 3). Gateshead guitarist Chris Montague can look forward to hearing a track from his new album hitting the airwaves and Newcastle's improvising pianist Paul Taylor (pictured) contributes a solo piece.
