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.

Paul Edis: Lockdown Live - May 1

Paul Edis (piano/vocal)

Another Friday lockdown lunchtime session with Paul Edis and delightful as ever it was too. Amazingly, although it's his seventh, I think he has yet to repeat himself so, as there were 13 tunes today next week will see him pass the 100 mark.

This week's selection included requests from Francis Tulip (Tune Up), BSH's own Ann Alex (Well You Needn't), Tony Roberts (The Duke) and Tony Eales (Unsquare Dance). 

Other classics were: You Stepped Out of a Dream; Embraceable You; Dindi; The Way You Look Tonight and Tenderly.

A classical classic, Plaisir d'amour, an original, 63 Years, and a couple of vocals - When You're Smiling and Midnight Sun.

These (all 13) made for a jolly afternoon that even the occasional picture freeze didn't spoil.

Request for next week, Moonlight in Vermont with its appropriate first line - Pennies in a stream - well hopefully more than pennies...
