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.

Wendy Kirkland's Latin Lockdown

Wendy Kirkland (piano/vocal); Pat Sprakes (guitar).

Let Wendy tell it:
"Day 37 of Latin Lockdowns....we had intended to do this yesterday but were having problems with the today we present our version of the great George Duke's Brazilian Love Affair, arranged and painstakingly programmed by Pat. It took him hours, and I made matters worse by asking him to fish out the octave pedal so I could make believe George was singing an octave below me. Hope you can hear it, we were quite pleased with the effect. Today's LL is dedicated to Lance Liddle of Bebop Spoken Here who was one of the first to review our music. Hope you all enjoy...oh and the colours we are wearing are those of the Brazilian flag."
