Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz 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".


11,618 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 753 of them this year alone and, so far, 17 this month (July 5).


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.

Hexham Thursday Sessions #9 : Whisper Not


Russell said...

The next time Ferg turns up at a Black Swan jam session will he be on trumpet or piano? Either one, it should be good. And, how about Dom and dad Chris sitting-in?

Russell - you're very kind, as ever, but when the jam starts again (finally), Ferg will be up for it, as would Dom (if he's in town) but there's no way I will be - it takes me a whole week to write out and "learn" the parts!

I'm looking forward to hearing Paul and the other pros on bass again, as are Ferg and Dom I'm sure...
